Why we do this
Healthy eating is important for all of us to live longer, balance weight and reduce the risk of lifestyle diseases. However, wholesome meals are increasingly replaced by highly processed foods that are low in nutrients and high in sugar, fat and salt and do not meet dietary recommendations. This has huge consequence for public health.
The more we know about nutrition, food, cooking and how to balance our diets, the better we’re able to make healthy choices for ourselves and our families.
We want to champion good food habits and inspire a healthy life. A healthy daily diet leaves room for the occasional indulgence, which is also part of a good life.
Through our wide collection of online recipes, on-pack information, collaboration with retail customers, inspirational events and educational programmes, we share our knowledge of what is good to eat and how to prepare a healthy breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner.
