Healthy eating for adults

  • Make courgette spaghetti or butternut squash noodles
  • Swap potatoes chips for sweet potatoes
  • Use skimmed milk (red top) as its the lowest fat option
  • Carry a water bottle with you (you can add fruit if you wish), as you may just be thirsty instead of hungry
  • Use low fat yogurt and add fresh fruit rather than full fat flavoured yogurts (just watch the sugar as sometime its increased to make up for the reduced fat!)
  • Try and clear your cupboards of naughty temptations – if you don’t have them, you can’t eat them, or just buy the size you want to have, and avoid supermarket offer and multi-buys
  • Use flavourings such as soya sauce and herbs and spices rather than adding salt
  • Look for products with no sugar or no added sugar
  • Eating regular meals can reduce the need to snack on unhealthy foods
  • Always plan your meals and take a shopping list to the supermarket, so you can avoid making impulse purchases – and never go shopping if you are hungry!
  • Bulk cook meals and freeze portions, these make great mid-week ready meals as well as lunches
