Food Facts - Getting the Balance Right
It is important that we eat the right amounts of food from each of the groups. It’s a bit like building blocks – we have to balance the blocks carefully to make sure we get the correct nutrients, otherwise the body will not work properly.

The biggest proportion of our food should come from bread, potatoes and cereal, and fruit and vegetables. Milk and dairy foods, and meat, fish or alternatives should follow this.

Only small amounts of food containing fats and sugars should be eaten.
