Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURES -

Who can re­sist a warm, fresh cof­fee or creamy hot choco­late? A large cafe­style drink can give you up to 1400kJ (335cal) — twice the kilo­joules of a healthy snack. Choose smaller sizes and ask for re­duced­fat milk.

It’s smooth and but­tery, and tastes so good! And this is why it’s so easy to overeat. Hold back on the but­ter (adding just a dash of milk), and try mash­ing in some cau­li­flower or car­rots to boost your fi bre.

In sum­mer, fruit is a re­fresh­ing way to end a meal, but in win­ter we search for some­thing warm­ing. Rich, self­sauc­ing pud­dings and crum­bles are loaded with fat and sugar, so watch the por­tions and don’t have them of­ten.
