Inside Story

 

What's in a Drink?
A fizzy soft drink will often contain large quantities of added sugars and very few nutrients.
Try to keep these to a minimum and swap them for water, milk or milkshakes with no added sugar.
Fruit juices and smoothies also contain a lot of vitamins that are good for our health, but it is best to drink these with a meal because they also contain sugar that can damage your teeth.
Types of fat in food
Saturated fats can raise cholesterol increasing your risk of heart disease
They are contained in high levels in foods like pies, meat products, sausages, cakes and biscuits.
By picking healthy options such as grilled food you`re reducing the levels of saturated fat in your diet
Unsaturated fats, on the other hand, can lower cholesterol and provide us with the essential fatty acids needed to stay healthy.
Oily fish, nuts and seeds, avocados, olive oils and vegetable oils are sources of unsaturated fat.
