As greengrocers, we're aware of our responsibilities towards our customers. That's why we'd like to help you achieve a healthy, balanced diet. For this, you need a combination of fats, vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates and minerals.
Vitamins play an essential part in healthy living. Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables as these contain high quantities of vitamins. These substances are also found in animal products such as fish.
Minerals include calcium, phosphorus, iodine, iron, sodium and potassium. These help build healthy teeth, bones, muscles, nerves and maintain your body's supply of oxygen.
The key to healthy eating is getting the balance right. Ideally this means as little animal or vegetable fat as possible. Proteins, on the other hand, are particularly important. They can be found in eggs, fish, poultry and dairy products, but also in potatoes and pulses.
Carbohydrates, our body's energy providers, are contained in sugars and starches in the diet - in rice, fruit and pasta, for example. Make sure you eat foods that are high in fibre.
