NHS Eatwell Guide 2016

NHS Eatwell Guide 2016The Department of Health has released the new Eatwell Guide that shows the different types of food we should eat – and in what proportions – to have a healthy, balanced diet.

The guide says a healthy diet should now include more fruit, vegetables and starchy carbohydrates.

Sugary soft drinks have been removed entirely from the new guide and foods that are high in fat, salt and sugar have been moved off the plate to a corner of the image, reflecting advice that they are not an essential part of a healthy and balanced diet.
