The Week is open for all – workplaces, communities, schools, individuals, anybody with an interest in leading a healthier life!

Since 2013, every June, the British Nutrition Foundation has hosted an annual event – Healthy Eating Week – through which they invite everyone to come together and get engaged in healthy eating. They have created tailored resources for different age groups with the aim of supporting everyone who is interested to learn more about making informed food choices and developing healthy eating habits.

Healthy Eating doesn't have to be Difficult

Here are some simple changes you can make to your diet to eat healthier:

  1. Increase your fruit and vegetable intake - Aim to eat at least 5 servings of fruit and vegetables a day.

  2. Eat whole grains instead of refined grains - Choose whole-grain bread, pasta, and rice instead of their refined counterparts.

  3. Limit your intake of added sugars - Reduce your consumption of sugary drinks, desserts, and candies.

  4. Choose lean protein sources - Opt for skinless chicken, fish, beans, and nuts instead of high-fat meats.

  5. Reduce your salt intake - Limit your use of salt in cooking and at the table, and choose low-sodium options when possible.

  6. Choose healthy fats - Incorporate healthy fats such as olive oil, avocado, and nuts into your diet.

  7. Drink plenty of water - Aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, and limit your intake of sugary drinks.

Remember, making small changes consistently is the key to success. Try incorporating one change at a time into your diet and you will be on your way to a healthier eating pattern.
