Shopping for food
Healthy eating starts with the choices you make when shopping. Before putting anything in your basket, check that is has not passed its use-by or best before date, and that you are happy with its nutritional contents.
With so much choice available, it is easier than ever to eat well.
If you are serious about improving your health and well-being, then you must also change your approach to buying food.
When shopping, aim for a wide variety of foods from all the major foods groups.
