8 top tips to eat a balanced diet

  • Base your meals on starchy foods such as bread, cereals, rice, pasta and potatoes.

  • Eat lots of fruit and veg. For example - add a sliced banana to your cereal; drink juice instead of coffee; snack on fruit and eat vegetables with your evening meal.

  • Eat more fish. Aim for at least two portions of fish a week, including one portion of oily fish such as salmon or herring.

  • Cut down on saturated fat and sugar. Too much saturated fat can increase the chance of developing heart disease, whilst consuming too much sugar can cause tooth decay.

  • Try to eat less salt - no more than 5g a day. Too much salt can raise your blood pressure - increasing the chance of developing heart disease or having a stroke.

  • Get active and try to be a healthy weight. If you're worried about your weight, ask your GP or a dietitian for advice.

  • Drink plenty of Water. To keep hydrated, we should be drinking about 6-8 glasses (1.2 litres) of water, or other fluids, every day.

  • Don't Skip Breakfast. Our morning meal helps give us the energy we need to face the day and some evidence suggests it actually helps people control their weight.
