What is The Eatwell Guide?
You may have heard of The Eatwell Plate, which was developed by the Foods Standard Agency to show, visually, the types and proportions of food needed for a healthy and well-balanced diet.
Put simply, The Eatwell Guide is an updated version of this. It aims to make it easier for you to identify foods you should try to eat more of, foods you should aim to eat less of, and how much of what you eat overall should come from which food group. Following the guidelines can help with effective diabetes management, encouraging you to make healthier choices for your body.
It applies to most people but not for children under two as they have different nutritional needs. If you have diabetes, you might want to check with your registered dietitian on how to adapt The Eatwell Guide to meet your own individual needs.
