"A nutritious breakfast is a vital way to start the day."
"Remember your five portions of fruit and veg each day."
"Eating a healthy, balanced diet plays an essential role in maintaining a healthy weight."
"Try to eat low fat and low sugar foods on a regular basis to maintain blood sugar levels."
"Starchy carbohydrates should make up just over a third of the food that you eat."
