Nutrition Summary

What we eat can make a considerable difference to our health.  A balanced diet is important for everyone, whatever their age.  In Grampian we are working together to make sure that everybody can enjoy the many benefits of eating a healthy diet.

To eat a healthier diet:

  • Base your meals on starchy foods that include breads, rice, potatoes and pasta
  • Eat lots of fruit and vegetables
  • Eat more fish
  • Cut down on saturated fat and sugar
  • Try to eat less salt – no more than 6g a day
  • Get active and try to be a healthy weight
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Don’t skip breakfast

Eating a balanced diet is a positive step we can all take towards improving our health.
