Balanced diet

The NHS eat well guide shows how much of each food group you should eat to have a well-balanced and healthy diet. A good balanced diet should include:

  • 5 or more portions of fruit and vegetables each day
  • 1 portion of starchy foods with each meal – wholegrain where possible
  • 2 or more portions of fish each week – 1 of which should be oily fish
  • less food that is high in fat, salt and sugar – these should be in small amounts
