What is Healthy Eating?
Eating well is not about counting calories, crash diets and self-denial. It's about fostering a positive relationship with the food we eat.
At Better, we know that getting the right balance of nutrition will keep you healthy, full of energy and feeling good. Variety is key to a healthy diet, and we actually get more enjoyment from our meals when we eat in a diverse and thoughtful way.
The Eatwell Guide
Developed by the Government, The Eatwell Guide is a handy visual guide to the major food groups, portion control, and the nutritional value of everyday foods. We’ll be using the guide as a basis of the Let’s Eat Right course to keep you familiar with and focussed on the building blocks of a healthy lifestyle.
Eating Out and Drinking
Healthy eating is about making your life more, not less, enjoyable. Our sessions teach you how to make healthy choices when eating out and socialising. From selecting from restaurant menus, to understanding alcohol units and calories – you’ll discover how to eat and drink sensibly and enjoy yourself as you do so!

Our course offers you the tips and tools needed to make healthier choices, from breaking down long-term goals into achievable steps to finding the right exercises and activities to keep you motivated for longer.
Food Portion Control
Having a healthy lifestyle is as much about how much you eat as what you eat. Drawing on The Eatwell Guide, we’ll coach you through planning and measuring food portions to help you shape your meals around your personal health goals.
Daily Food Diary
Keeping a personalised food journal helps you better understand your eating habits and provides the basis for making positive changes to your food intake. In our classes, you’ll learn how to master a healthy diet and discover how a food diary can steer your lifestyle changes.
The second half of all Let's Eat Right classes is activity based, allowing you settle into a fitness routine, right from the start. You’ll try your hand at various types of exercise to find your favourite activity to fuel your fitness goals.
Healthy Recipes and Meal Ideas
Our course materials offer you plenty of healthy eating recipes and tips, from quick and easy-to-prepare meals that are both tasty and nutritious, to healthier versions of hearty classics. Discover a wonderfully wide range of recipes and enticing healthy snacks, from beef chilli to chicken bakes, from fruity tea cakes to vegetable stir-fries.
