FUN WITH FOOD

Make meal­times fun, be­cause a new study has found that chil­dren who play with their fruit and veg­eta­bles are more likely to eat them. Re­searchers be­lieve you can help chil­dren over­come their re­sis­tance to food such as cu­cum­bers, ba­nanas and toma­toes by giv­ing them per­mis­sion to touch, han­dle and even squash them.

PRO­TEIN POWER

Pro­tein-rich foods to up your in­take: Greek yo­ghurt: Packed with around 10g of pro­tein per 100g, try it as a sub­sti­tute for your usual daily dairy snack. Soy­beans: Soy has more pro­tein by vol­ume than beef, and ba­si­cally no sat­u­rated fats, so young green soy­beans (also known as edamame) are a great ad­di­tion to your diet. Tuna: A nat­u­rally lean source of pro­tein. Most cans of tuna con­tain 40g of pro­tein.
