Eating a healthy, balanced diet

Eating a healthy, balanced diet is an important part of maintaining good health and can help you feel your best. This means eating a wide variety of foods and drinks in the right amounts to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.  The Eatwell Guide shows how much of what we eat overall should come from each food group to achieve a balanced diet.

Evidence shows there are significant health benefits to getting at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day. That's 5 portions of fruit and veg in total, not 5 portions of each, learn more about  5 A Day portion sizes.  Almost all fruit and vegetables count towards your 5 A Day.  They can be fresh, frozen, canned, dried or juiced. Learn more about what counts towards your 5 A Day.
