New government advertising campaign encourages healthy eating for all
Did you know that a can of Coke contains the equivalent of 17 sugar cubes? Or that there's a wine glass of fat in a large pizza?
Well, you're a Zestie, so maybe you did already. But a new advertising campaign from the Department of Health has launched, in a bid to make us all 'food smart' and health-up our diets.
10 healthy eating habits
Watch out for the TV ads, which also aim to raise awareness of the hidden 'nasties' such as salt, sugar and fat that are present in so many commin foods - especially processed products.
The campaign is part of the government’s Change4Life scheme, which aims to make it easier for us all to monitor what we eat and make more positive food choices. Various supermarkets are supporting the scheme by choosing to introduce a traffic light system of food labelling this year 2013, which will enable shoppers to quickly work out the nutritional value of day-to-day groceries.
Cook, eat and run - fast food for home cooks
Change4Life has come up with ‘Meal Mixer’ - a combination of over 2,000 quick and easy recipe ideas - which can be requested free online. The book also contains discount vouchers for essential food items in a bid to ensure that everyone can fill their cupboards with healthier food choices.
