Healthy eating for a healthier you – Coventry City Council
A healthy diet can help reduce your risk of developing coronary heart disease and help to stop you gaining weight, whilst reducing your risk of Diabetes and high blood pressure
Everyone should aim for a well-balanced diet and one of the best ways to understand it is to think of foods in food groups.
Try to eat:
- plenty of fruit and vegetables
- plenty of starchy foods such as bread, rice, potatoes and pasta. Choose wholegrain varieties wherever possible
- milk and dairy products
- White meat, fish, eggs, beans and other non-dairy sources of protein
Choose options that are lower in fat, salt and sugar whenever you can.
