Eating healthily doesn’t mean you can’t have any of the foods or drinks you enjoy that might not be considered healthy, such as those high in fat, salt and sugar. If you follow the Eatwell Guide
you can still enjoy these from time to time, it’s just about making sure you get the balance right.
The Mediterranean diet is an example of a diet that contains a balanced mix of these food groups. It’s high in vegetables and fruits, and contains healthy fats such as olive oil.
