Be canteen-careful

Lunch at the office canteen may be convenient, but it may also be loaded with kilojoules, salt, sugar and fat. Be sure to look out for healthier options.

It also includes fish at least twice a week – oily fish such as tuna, sardines and salmon is particularly healthy as it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
