A guide to healthy eating

It is important to eat healthy and nutritious meals that keep us energised and full. Cooking can also be a great way to relieve stress and keep you occupied.

Some handy tips are:

  • Eat regularly throughout the day and try to avoid unnecessary snacking.
  • If you do feel the need to snack, try and swap to healthy alternatives.
  • Try and keep meals balanced with food groups.
  • Drink water to keep hydrated. If you don’t like water, you can add some squash to it. Fizzy drinks taste great, but they can make you feel dehydrated.
  • Only cook what you feel comfortable making. There is no need to push yourself. Cook food you want to eat and know you will enjoy making.
  • Listen to your cravings, it could be your body’s way of telling you what it needs.
  • If you live with others, then involve them in the cooking process. It can be a great way to spend time together and bond.
  • Share recipes with family and friends.
