The benefits of a healthy, balanced diet.
Eating a healthy, balanced diet an essential part of healthy living, because our bodies need the right nutrients from food to function properly. We need all the five major food groups for fuel, but a balanced diet is not achieved by simply consuming these food groups in equal measure. At Findus, we place particular importance on the very special role fish plays in achieving a balanced diet.
What is a balanced diet?
Simply, a balanced diet is one which includes a sufficient variety of foods and drinks, in appropriate amounts, to provide the energy and nutrients needed for health. Key nutrients are vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and fats, and all of these have numerous important roles in the body. A healthy balanced diet is also one which allows a person to maintain a healthy weight.
Choosing Quality Protein
Our body needs protein for the growth, maintenance and repair of our cells so it’s important to get the recommended daily intake from high-quality sources.
It’s recommended that we eat fish at least twice a week, including one portion of oily fish to reap its multiple nutritional benefits. And there’s plenty to choose from our varied range of fish products: our favorites include battered cod fillets, crunchy fish sticks and steam delicious cod loins. And remember, frozen fish is just as good nutritionally as fresh!
Our Captain Findus products fit perfectly into a healthy balanced diet. We also have plenty of recipe ideas to inspire you.
