Lunch

Making healthier choices

When you're eating out in a restaurant or café, or taking your own lunch to work, there are a few simple things you can do to make your meal healthier.

Practical tips

When you're eating out or buying food that has been prepared for you, it's often easy to have more fat, salt and calories than you realize.

You can also end up eating more than you would have done if you had made the food yourself.

Although it feels like good value for money when you get served a big portion, if you're trying to eat healthily this means it's very easy to eat too much or have lots more fat and calories than you need to.

The simplest tip, but not always the easiest, is to remember that you don't need to clear your plate. Ideally try to eat slowly and stop when you're full.
