    Calories are a measure of the amount of energy in food and drink. Your weight depends on the balance between how much energy you consume and how much energy you use up. If you eat or drink more than you use you can gain weight. If you don’t eat enough you can lose it.

  • Fat17g


    Your body wouldn’t function without fat. Fat is an essential part of a healthy balanced diet. It provides fat soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. But as fat is a rich source of energy (calories), it can easily contribute to weight gain.

  • Saturates2g


    On average as a nation it seems we’re consuming too much saturated fat. Eating too much can increase your cholesterol, which is a risk factor for heart disease. Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of heart disease.

  • Carbs41g


    Starchy foods like bread, breakfast cereals or potatoes are a good source of carbohydrate and should make up just over a third of the food you eat. When eaten, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose, which is used to fuel cells in your body like brain and muscle cells. Some people think starchy carbohydrates are fattening, but gram for gram it contains less than half the calories of fat. Choose whole grain or high fibre varieties where you can as they often contain more nutrients.

  • Sugars21g


    On average in the UK we eat too much sugar. Foods and drinks high in sugars are not needed in the diet. So if you have them, make sure they're infrequent and in small amounts, or you risk tooth decay or obesity.

  • Fibre4g


    Fibre is classed as a carbohydrate and you should aim to eat 30g fibre each day. Eating plenty of fibre is good for your digestive health and is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.

  • Protein9g


    All cells and tissues contain protein, so it’s essential for growth, repair and good health. Protein from animal sources such as meat, fish, eggs and dairy products contain all the essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) needed by the body. If you're vegetarian or vegan, you can get the protein you need through eating a variety of different plant sources such as pulses, nuts and cereals.

Whole Grain Goodness


  • 120g porridge oats
  • 840ml water
  • 100g flaked almonds
  • 4 tbsp heather honey


  1. It is recommended that the oats are soaked beforehand as the water softens and bloats them. Put the oats in the pan and add half of the water and leave to stand for a few minutes.
  2. Add the remaining water when ready and put the pan on a medium heat. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat and simmer for 6 minutes stirring occasionally.
  3. Scatter the flaked almonds onto a baking sheet and place under a medium grill for 1-2 minutes until golden and set aside. Meanwhile, check the porridge. Once the porridge has reached its desired consistency, serve into bowls, top with a generous tablespoon of honey, sprinkle with some almonds and serve immediately.
