With winter behind us and the prospect of warmer weather looming it is an ideal time to start thinking about eating more healthy food. It is very easy to get into bad habits which then become increasingly harder to break. Try gradually introducing more fresh food (fruit, vegetables, pulses, grains etc) into your diet and phasing out processed or ready made foods. Set an example to younger children in the house by snacking on fruit, raisins, yoghurts and nuts instead of chocolate or crisps. Making gradual changes to your eating habits increases the likelihood of them becoming a part of your day-to-day life as opposed to a passing fad... not to mention the increase in energy and loss of weight you'll enjoy!
