© Food – a fact of life 2008 Part one Bread, rice, potatoes, pasta and other starchy foods group
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Can you name 6 foods which belong to this food group? 2.1
© Food – a fact of life 2008 The group is made up of bread, rice, potato, pasta and other starchy foods.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Here is a list of foods you would find in this group. bread breakfast cereals bulgur wheat couscous flour noodles oats pasta plantain potatoes rice sweet potatoes yam Did it surprise you to see any of these foods in this group?
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Importance of starchy foods Everyone needs to eat lots of food from this group. This food group should make up 1/3 of our diet. Try to include foods from this group in every meal.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Energy and nutrients Foods from this group provide a good source of energy as they are a main source of carbohydrate in the diet. They also provide important nutrients, e.g. B vitamins (bread and potatoes); Iron (fortified breakfast cereals); Folate (wholemeal flour and rice). Flour in the UK is fortified with calcium, so flour and products made from flour could contribute to your calcium intake as well.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 How could you add starchy foods to these meal occasions? Breakfast Lunch Evening Meal 2.2
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Examples For breakfast, you could have wholegrain cereal or wholemeal bread. For lunch, you could have a couscous salad. For your evening meal, you could include pasta or potatoes.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Are starchy foods fattening? Starchy foods provide carbohydrate which gram per gram, provide less energy than protein, fat and alcohol.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Energy (kJ) provided per gram Fat provides more than twice the energy compared with carbohydrate. What do you notice?
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Cooking and serving Although starchy foods provide less energy, we need to be careful in the way they are cooked or served. It is easy to eat starchy foods with other foods which are high in fat, e.g. butter on bread, fried potatoes, and creamy sauces on pasta.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Healthier options To keep the fat content down, you can try: using a low-fat spread on bread; having boiled potatoes instead of fried; going for tomato-based sauces on pasta, instead of creamy ones. Choosing wholemeal varieties of starchy foods can also increase your fibre intake.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Variety is key Try to eat different starchy foods every day to get a balanced diet, such as: Rice: brown, white, basmati, pudding and risotto rice. Pasta: different shapes, flavours, filled, brown and white types. Potatoes: baked, boiled, mashed, and oven-baked wedges. Also try: sweet potatoes, yam, plantain; bagels, pitta, naan bread; couscous, noodles.

© Food – a fact of life 2008 Part two The importance of breakfast
© Food – a fact of life 2008 What did you eat for breakfast this morning? 2.3
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Why eat breakfast? Eating a healthy breakfast can help keep us full throughout the morning and it ’ s a great way to get some of the important nutrients our bodies need. It can help us achieve a balanced diet. Breakfast helps us stay alert, concentrate and be active at school.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Breakfast top 10
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Number 10 Eggs are a good breakfast option. Go for boiled, poached or scrambled, instead of fried to keep the fat content down.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Number 9 Cut down on foods and drinks high in fat, sugar, and/or salt. Foods like croissants, pancakes and pastries are high in fats and sugars, so only have them occasionally, or choose reduced sugar, salt or fat varieties when you can. Try to have less toppings too, such as butter, jam or syrup.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Number 8 Include some protein. A cooked breakfast can provide you with protein which is needed for your growth and development. Go for lean, grilled bacon, grilled sausages, or baked beans.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Number 7 Include some calcium. Milk and dairy foods are good sources of calcium, which we need for strong, healthy bones. Try to include foods such as milk, yogurt or cheese, as part of your breakfast. Going for reduced fat varieties will also help you have a healthy breakfast.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Number 6 On the go? Go for something quick and easy. Fruit smoothies may be a good grab and go option for an easy breakfast if you are short of time. Alternatively, you can go for a piece of fruit, such as a banana or apple.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Number 5 Add some fruit. Breakfast is a good opportunity to help you have some fruit to get your 5 a day. Why not add fruit to cereal, have a glass of juice, or even a mash banana on toast?
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Number 4 Choose whole grain or wholemeal varieties when you can. These types of bread or cereals are high in fibre that we need to keep our guts healthy. They also help you to feel full for longer.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Number 3 Go for variety. Why not vary what you have for breakfast by trying other types of bread, such as bagels, fruit loaf, hot cross-buns, crumpets or English muffins?
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Number 2 Have a drink. Go for water, fruit juice, fruit smoothies, milk or tea, to keep you well-hydrated.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Number 1 Make time for breakfast. Just waking up five minutes earlier so that you allow yourself time to have something to eat or drink for breakfast could really make a difference.
© Food – a fact of life 2008 Try something new! Having a sandwich might seem like an odd choice for breakfast, but the key thing is to establish a regular pattern of eating breakfast every day.
