There’s nothing wrong with loving your food.
But what you eat and how much is really important for your waistline and your overall health, as being overweight or obese increases your risk of getting Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers.
The good news is, there are lots of cheap and easy ways you and your family can eat well every day. In fact, just a few small changes can make all the difference – and we’re here to help.
Easy – and cheap
For instance, something as simple as reading food labels more closely when you shop can help you cut down on sugar, salt and saturated fat. Most of us know how important fresh fruit and vegetables are in a balanced diet too, and that we should have five portions (or more) a day.
If you think that means it costs more to eat well, you’ll be surprised. It actually costs less – and you don’t need to be a budding chef. In fact, our Taste for Life Cookery Courses will help you even if you’ve never cooked at all!
