Follow the Eatwell Guide, which shows the proportions of foods from the main food groups needed to achieve a varied and healthy diet. Research shows that following government-backed healthy eating advice, such as the UK’s Eatwell Guide, across the population can deliver environmental benefits as well as benefitting health, but currently only about 30% of people are achieving at least 5 out of 9 Eatwell Guide recommendations. As well as reducing the environmental impact of diets in the UK on average by about a third, this style of diet will likely improve the health of the UK population.

Here's a selection of resources to support teaching around the Eatwell Guide:
