5 A Day
We know how important our 5 a day is, so trying to incorporate it as part of a healthy balanced diet shouldn’t be too hard, especially if you get inventive. Smoothies are a great way to mix up your fruit and vegetable intake, why not try frozen fruit blended to create a nutritious and natural drink as an alternative. You can even mix your mornings up by adding some fresh fruit to your cereal. Not only are you getting your 5 a day, but you’re trying and experimenting with new combinations you never knew you liked!
Stop With The Sugar
Natural sugars found within fruit are fine, but it’s the added sugars which can cause complications and contribute to an unhealthy diet. Tooth decay and obesity are just some of the immediate issues with too much sugar, usually found in fizzy drinks, sweets etc. Cutting these out completely will prevent these health issues from arising and focusing on foods with natural sugars and not free sugars should be your priority.
