Healthy Eating Campaign 

We are asking the people of Suffolk for thier recipie ideas as part of the healthy eating campaign we want meals that are low cost and relatively healthy! 

A healthy, balanced diet is an important part of maintaining good health and can help you feel your best. 

This means eating a wide variety of foods and drinks in the right proportions to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. It is recommended that men have around 2,500 calories a day (10,500 kilojoules). Women should have around 2,000 calories a day (8,400 kilojoules). Most adults are eating more calories than they need and should eat fewer calories.
