The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has published a handy guide on how you can eat healthier, and cut down on food waste.

 

Diet choices

Add vegetables, fruit, legumes, nuts and whole grains to your diet.

Cut back on refined starches, sugar, fats and salt.

Swap refined ‘white’ foods for more nutritious ‘brown’ options.

Know your fats: unsaturated are better than saturated and trans-fats.

 

Planet choices

Think about the environment, reduce your food foot-print.

Diversify your diet- go traditional, local and seasonal.

Eat sustainably sourced fish.

Keep fresh and waste less.

 

Life choices

Eat in company. It’s good for your health.

Learn to read labels.

Be a critical consumer and don’t let packaging or advertising sway you.

Exercise for at least 30 minutes, every day.

Ask for healthier meal choices.

Talk to people. Share your knowledge and respect for food.
