why should u limit the foods you eat from the fats,oils,and sweets group

1 Answer

  • Foods and drinks high in fat, sugar and salt

    These foods should be avoided as they are high in fat, including saturated fat, sugar and salt. They may promote obesity, which can lead to heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers. 

    How many servings can I have a day? There are NO recommended servings for this group because they are not essential. Start today and limit what you eat from this shelf to no more than 1 serving a day maximum and ideally not everyday. Don’t be tempted to swap eating healthy foods so you can have more of these foods high in fat, sugar and salt. You need healthy foods in the serving sizes recommended to provide all your vitamins and minerals.
