Tips for healthy grocery shopping


Grocery shopping can be fraught with danger for the chic mummy who is watching her weight. Aisles full of confectionery, checkouts laden with chips, and let’s not even get started on trying to figure out which packaged foods are actually healthy! Here are some tips to help make your grocery shopping healthier for you and your family.

I know this is obvious, but make a list before you go, and stick to it!

Choose cheese labelled “low fat” rather than “reduced fat”, as reduced fat cheese may not necessarily be low in fat.

“Low fat” foods are not always healthy, as the fat is often replaced with sugar.

Choose the leanest meat – it is often labelled “heart smart”

Tinned seafood is a great source of low fat protein that is high in omega-3’s. It is also very reasonably priced.
