How of­ten can I eat treat foods?

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURE -

The num­ber of serves of dis­cre­tionary foods you can have each day de­pends on three fac­tors: your age, height and level of phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity. Most peo­ple in the healthy weight range with a low to medium ac­tiv­ity level can en­joy one or two treat foods a day. This in­cludes those of us who sit all day at work and even peo­ple who ex­er­cise a lit­tle. (This means mov­ing for about an hour a day.) How­ever, “if you’re taller, have a more ac­tive job and are a healthy weight, you can choose to spend your ex­tra kilo­joules on up to three serves of treat foods a day”, says Fayet-Moore.

Use this treat-food tool­kit as a guide, and you can con­tinue to en­joy all the foods you love in a healthy way!
