SPAR supports National Nutrition Week which runs from 9 to 15 October 2013.The theme this year is ‘Eat less - choose your portion with caution!’

Many of us tend to overeat, so take note of the following guidelines:

  1. Choose a variety of foods from different food groups, and eat recommended amounts.
  2. Make portion control a daily way of life.  Be aware that your body may only experience feeling “full” sometime after eating your meal.  Eat slowly, and pay attention to your body’s internal cues to avoid overeating. Stick to regular meal and snack times.
  3. Use salt and foods high in salt sparingly.

It’s time to downsize, not upsize!
