The Eatwell Guide

The Eatwell Guide is produced by the Department of Health and available to download for advice on eating healthily and achieving a balanced diet.

Eating well and having a healthy lifestyle can help us feel our best – and make a big
difference to our long-term health. So why not make a change today?
The Eatwell Guide shows the proportions in which different types of foods are needed to
have a well-balanced and healthy diet. The proportions shown are representative of your food consumption over the period of a day or even a week, not necessarily each meal time.

Is the Eatwell Guide for me?
The Eatwell Guide applies to most people regardless of weight, dietary restrictions/
preferences or ethnic origin.
However, it doesn’t apply to children under 2 because they have different nutritional needs. Between the ages of 2 and 5, children should gradually move to eating the same foods as the rest of the family, in the proportions shown on the Eatwell Guide. Anyone with special dietary requirements or medical needs might want to check with a registered dietitian on how to adapt the Eatwell Guide to meet their individual needs.
