What you eat, and how much, is so important for your health and your waistline.
If you eat too many foods that are high in fat and sugar, and you’re not as active as you should be, you’re more likely to put on weight.
Becoming overweight or obese increases your risk of getting type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.
But choosing healthier foods is easier than you might think.
There are lots of cheap and tasty ways you and your family can eat well every day.
Eating healthily is great for your body and your wallet and it doesn’t have to cost more. Preparing and cooking your own meals is generally cheaper than buying a takeaway or a ready meal, and because it’s easier to control what goes in to your meal, it can be healthier.
In fact, there’s even a free One You app – ‘Easy Meals’ – that’s here to help you find easy, affordable, healthy meals that taste great and are healthier for you. With Easy Meals, you’ll find delicious, easy meal ideas to help get you going if you’re ever short of inspiration. The app also has a ton of great vegetarian meals, like Banana & Apricot Bagels, or a Mediterranean Potato Bake.
