Bread | Cereals | Potatoes

Despite what some people say and think, these starchy foods are not necessarily stodgy and unhealthy!  Quite the opposite, if cooked and served without added fat, they are perhaps the most filling and nourishing foods we can eat.

Watch out for some breads which have butter added and best to go for wholegrain.  This also goes for rice & pasta, try choosing wholegrain.  Wholegrain is particularly good because of the fibre they provide which prevents constipation.  A slightly different type of fibre found in oats (also in fruit, vegetables & beans) has a further benefit of helping to reduce your blood cholesterol levels.

  • Aim to base meals around a good serving from this group, choosing wholegrain types.
