What's a healthy diet? Healthy eating, dieting and food fads - there are articles in nearly every newspaper and magazine. But often the messages are conflicting or misleading, and it can be hard to know which advice is nutritionally sound and accurate.
That's where the UK's national food guide comes in, known as 'The Eatwell Plate'. Eating well is all about balance and variety, and 'The Eatwell Plate' can help you achieve this. It's made up of five food groups, each group representing a different segment in the plate. The segments vary in size, depending on the proportions needed to make up a healthy diet. Use the Eatwell Plate to help you get the balance right.
