Now it’s easier to make healthier food choices.

As part of our healthy eating agenda, we want to make sure you can find out exactly what’s in the food you are eating by simply looking at the nutritional labelling. And with the help of nutritionists, behaviour experts and shoppers, we’re working hard to make sure more information is displayed in a clear and simple manner.

  • Understanding food labels
  • Let’s be clear. It’s not easy to work out exactly what’s in the food you buy. But good nutritional labelling is key to helping you understand how to eat more healthily. So, we’ve put this handy guide together to help. We hope you find it useful.
  • Know your calories
  • The average woman needs 2,000 calories per day, the average man 2,500 and children fewer than 2,000, depending on their age and lifestyle.
  • Know your portions
  • Make sure you’re eating the right portion size because all the numbers on the nutrition label are based on this.
  • Know your colours
  • The traffic light colouring helps identify if a product is high, moderate or low in saturates, sugar or salt. Just compare two items, with similar serving size, if one features more green then it’s healthier!
