The Eatwell Plate The Eatwell shows the balance and variety of different foods that make a healthy, balanced diet. It is made up of five different food groups.
Fruit and vegetables * We should all eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables every day. * A portion of roughly what fits into the palm of your hand, or a glass of juice. * All fruits and vegetables count, except potatoes. * Fresh, canned, dried, frozen and juiced fruit and vegetables all count. * Fruit and veg give us plenty of fibre for a healthy gut an lots of vitamin C to fight infection.
Bread, rice, potatoes, pasta and other starchy foods This group includes: different types of bread, rice, pasta and noodles; potatoes, yam and plantain; breakfast cereals. Eat more from this group.. About 4 portion each day – try to include something from this food group at each meal. Choose wholemeal and wholegrain varieties. This group is needed for energy and to keep the gut healthy (if we eat wholemeal versions!!)
Milk and dairy foods This group includes: milk, cheese and yogurt. This food group is an important for healthy bones and teeth. We need to eat 2-3 foods from this group a day e.g. a glass of milk, a pot of yogurt or a matchbox size piece of cheese. Go for lower fat versions, e.g. semi-skimmed milk, low fat yogurt or reduced fat cheese.
Meat, fish, eggs, beans and other non-dairy sources of protein This group includes: - meat, e.g. beef, chicken or lamb; - fish, e.g. tuna, salmon or cod; - alternatives, e.g. eggs, nuts, beans and lentils. This group is needed for growth, development and repair, and to stay healthy. Visible fat and skin should be trimmed from meat and poultry before you cook or eat it. Bake, steam, grill or microwave rather than frying as these are healthier ways to cook food. We only need 2 portions of this each day. We should all eat at least two portions of fish a week - one portion should be from an oily fish, e.g. salmon, mackerel or sardines.
Foods and drinks high in fat and/or sugar This group contains: foods containing fat, e.g. pastry, margarine, oil. foods containing sugar, e.g. jam, biscuits, sweets. Foods from this group should be eaten in small amounts. If you have food and drinks containing sugar, have them as part of your meals, rather than between meals. This will help to protect your teeth from dental decay.
