Instructions

In this day and age with, on the one hand, the incidence of overweight children increasing, and on the
other hand eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia increasing, it is never too early to encourage
young people to develop healthy eating habits.
Healthy Eating Guidelines:
 Eat a variety of different foods using the Food Pyramid as a guide.
 Eat the right amount of food to be a healthy weight and exercise regularly.
 Eat four or more portions of Fruit and Vegetables every day.
 Eat more foods rich in starch – bread, cereals, potatoes, pasta and rice.
 Eat more foods rich in fibre – bread and cereals (especially wholegrain), potatoes, fruit and
vegetables.
 Eat less fat, especially saturated fats. Make lower fat choices whenever possible. Oven bake
instead of frying.
 If you drink or eat snacks containing sugar, limit the number of times you take them
throughout the day.
 Use a variety of seasonings – try not to rely on salt to flavour foods.
 If you drink alcohol, drink sensibly and preferably with meals
 Enjoy your food
