Five a day
Some foods are better for us than others, and help to keep us
alive for longer. There are not good and bad foods but just
foods we should be eating more of than others. We need to
get the balance right. If we eat a balanced diet, we are
getting all the nutrients we need.
To stay healthy, we are advised
to eat five portions of fruit and
vegetables a day.
What counts as five portions?
Almost all fruit and vegetables
count and can be eaten in a
variety of different ways – it’s
easier than you might think.

Saturated and unsaturated fats
Fat comes from animals and vegetables:
Animal fats (such as butter and lard) are saturated fats.
The liver turns these fats into cholesterol.
Too much cholesterol can clog up the arteries making it more
difficult for the heart to pump blood around the body and
increasing the risk of heart disease.
Vegetable fats (margarine and oil) are poly- or
monounsaturated fats. They are believed to reduce the
amount of cholesterol the liver produces.
Some fats are ‘hidden’ in
meat products such as
sausages and burgers.
