The Eatwell Guide

The Eatwell Guide shows the different types of food that make up our diet and shows the proportions we should eat them in to have a healthy, balanced diet.

The Eatwell Guide divides the foods we eat and drink into 5 main food groups. Try to choose a variety of different foods from each of the groups to help you get the wide range of nutrients your body needs to stay healthy.
