Ways to cut down
Get the right balance
It can feel tricky to make sure we eat enough fruit and veg – don't forget your 5 A Day. The interactive Eatwell Guide shows how much of what we eat should come from each food group to achieve a healthy, balanced diet.
Most of us could do with eating less sugar, especially added sugar (extra sugar added by manufacturers or you at home). Cut down by watching out for sugar when you shop and start making some smart swaps.
Eat less salt
Try simple ways to cut down on salt. Most of the salt we have is already in the foods we buy. Don't add salt to your food automatically – taste it first, it probably already tastes good! Shop for low-salt or reduced-salt foods, and watch out for salt by checking the labels.
