Be food smart


Be food smart

When it comes to our food, we all like it to be cheap, easy and tasty. And that often means ready made foods, snacks and takeaways.

But if you look inside many of these foods and drinks, you’ll see they have lots of fat, salt and sugar. Too much of which can cause cholesterol, block our arteries and even lead to heart attacks, strokes and diseases like type 2 diabetes and cancers.

The good news is that we don’t have stop enjoying our family favourites like fish and chips, curries and sandwiches altogether. Finding tasty and healthier alternatives is easy. And it’s often cheaper (not to mention tastier) to make your own!

The recipes are easy to follow no matter what your level of cooking skill. You just need to be a bit food smart.
