Encouraging healthier food choices for customers

We want our customers to live healthy lives and enjoy better quality foods as part of a balanced diet. Last minute purchases are frequent at the tills, so it is important for us to offer healthier products, such as dried fruits, nuts or nutritious snacks. All our food based products are tested through our ‘Healthier Tills Criteria’ to ensure we provide only healthier options.

 

  • 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 for children, it depends on their age and lifestyle.
  • Know your portions
  • Make sure you’re eating the right portion size by paying attention to the recommended portion sizes on pack.
  • 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!
