New guide illustrates a healthy, balanced diet

A new guide by Public Health England says a healthy diet should now include more fruit, vegetables and starchy carbohydrates, and fewer sugary foods and drinks.

The new guide shows the revised proportions of the food groups that help us meet official advice and nutrient requirements.

The guide replaces the eatwell plate and has been refreshed to reflect updated dietary recommendations, including those on sugar, fibre and starchy carbohydrates from the scientific advisory committee on nutrition (SACN) report on carbohydrates and health in 2015.
