National Campaign Urges People to Go For Healthy Food Options
The latest Change4Life campaign has come up with suggestions for people to swap eatables while shopping to healthier ones reduce the amount of saturated foods they consume in their diet. A family could reduce the sugar intake by 75% of a bag of sugar over just one month by switching to fizzy drinks for sugar-free alternatives, suggested findings of the campaign.
Also, swopping whole milk with semi-skimmed could be a good option to reduce fat intake by a third of a pint over a period of four weeks.
The campaign is run by Public Health England (PHE). It encourages people to go for healthier food items in a bid to stay protected from obesity and heart diseases. Going for reduced fat cheese instead of cheese and low-fat alternatives than butter could be healthier breakfast options.
“Swapping like-for-like food in our diet could help cut out surprising levels of saturated fat, sugar and ultimately calories without having to give up the kinds of food we like”, said Professor Kevin Fenton, Director of health and wellbeing at PHE.
He said consumption of too much saturated fat and sugar increases the calorie intake, which in return increases the risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and some cancers.
