Brits confused about diet

17th September 2007

A UK food watchdog has warned that many Britons are unaware how to follow a healthy, balanced diet.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) suggests there is widespread ignorance about how much starchy food like rice, bread and pasta should be eaten and that there is confusion over what can contribute towards the target “five-a-day? intake of fruit and vegetables.

The FSA has now re-designed the image it uses to show what makes up a healthy diet with a newly-designed “eatwell plate? using photos of different foods and renames some food groups.
