Live Healthier, Stay Healthier
In order to live healthier and stay healthier, we have to eat healthier. To do this we need to manage the amount of fat salt and sugar we have in our diets. We may not recognise this but traditional African and African/Caribbean foods and cooking styles can significantly increase our risk of health conditions. This booklet provides guidance on the recommended amounts of fat, salt and sugar we should consume, draws attention to the risks of exceeding these recommended amounts, how to manage portion sizes, and how to cook traditional dishes in a healthier way.
