Eating well and enjoying food are one of life’s pleasures, with such a huge variety of food and drink available it can sometimes be hard to make choices that will be good for us.
People are aware of the link between diet and health but sometimes a bit unsure of how to achieve a balanced diet.
The eatwell plate is the best way for the general population to balance their diet in a healthy and sustainable way. It shows the different types of food we need to eat and in what proportions to have them in.
It's a good idea to try to get this balance right every day, but you don't need to do it at every meal. And you might find it easier to get the balance right over a longer period, say a week.
The eatwell plate applies to most people whether they're a healthy weight or overweight, whether they eat meat or are vegetarian, and no matter what their ethnic origin.
Eating well is something to make part of your life throughout your life rather than as a fad or by dieting. Eating well thorough out life helps prevent disease but making a positive change towards healthier eating or managing your weight is always a good thing.
To help here are a few examples of healthy and tasty meals we suggest as part of our weight management programmes.
