Download the Eat Well plate below to help you get the balance right.
The eatwell plate shows how much of what you eat should come from each food group. This includes everything you eat during the day including snacks.
So try to eat: Plenty of fruit and vegetables
Plenty of bread, rice, potatoes, pasta and other starchy food - choose wholegrain varieties when you can
Some milk and dairy foods
Some meat, fish, eggs, beans and other non-dairy sources of protein
Just a small amount of foods and drinks high in fat and/or sugar
Look at the eatwell plate to see how much of a whole day's food should come from each food group and try to match this in your own diet.
Try to choose options that are lower in fat, salt and sugar when you can.
