    Calories are a measure of the amount of energy in food and drink. Your weight depends on the balance between how much energy you consume and how much energy you use up. If you eat or drink more than you use you can gain weight. If you don’t eat enough you can lose it.

  • Fat28g


    Your body wouldn’t function without fat. Fat is an essential part of a healthy balanced diet. It provides fat soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. But as fat is a rich source of energy (calories), it can easily contribute to weight gain.

  • Saturates5g


    On average as a nation it seems we’re consuming too much saturated fat. Eating too much can increase your cholesterol, which is a risk factor for heart disease. Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of heart disease.

  • Carbs23g


    Starchy foods like bread, breakfast cereals or potatoes are a good source of carbohydrate and should make up just over a third of the food you eat. When eaten, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose, which is used to fuel cells in your body like brain and muscle cells. Some people think starchy carbohydrates are fattening, but gram for gram it contains less than half the calories of fat. Choose whole grain or high fibre varieties where you can as they often contain more nutrients.

  • Sugars2g


    On average in the UK we eat too much sugar. Foods and drinks high in sugars are not needed in the diet. So if you have them, make sure they're infrequent and in small amounts, or you risk tooth decay or obesity.

  • Fibre5g


    Fibre is classed as a carbohydrate and you should aim to eat 30g fibre each day. Eating plenty of fibre is good for your digestive health and is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.

  • Protein31g


    All cells and tissues contain protein, so it’s essential for growth, repair and good health. Protein from animal sources such as meat, fish, eggs and dairy products contain all the essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) needed by the body. If you're vegetarian or vegan, you can get the protein you need through eating a variety of different plant sources such as pulses, nuts and cereals.

Whole Grain Goodness


  • 1 chicken breast fillet, about 200g
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1/2 tsp mild chilli seasoning
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large, very ripe avocado
  • Several sprigs of coriander, chopped
  • 2 crusty Whole Grain rolls or slices of Whole Grain bread


  1. Slice the chicken into strips about 1cm thick. Crush the cumin and coriander seeds using a pestle and mortar. Mix with the chill seasoning and a little salt and coat the chicken pieces by placing the ingredients in a polythene bag and shaking well. Place on a foil lined grill rack and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil. Cook under a moderate grill for 12-15 minutes, turning once until cooked through.
  2. Halve and stone the avocado. Scoop the flesh into a bowl and lightly mash with the coriander and a little seasoning. Split the rolls in half.
  3. Drizzle the cut sides of the rolls or bread with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and pile the avocado and chicken mixture on the rolls or bread slices. Toast them for about 2 minutes or until warmed through. Alternatively use a Panini machine and sandwich the filling on the bread or rolls.

Cooking Tips

  • If you like really spicy flavours, add a dash of hot chilli sauce to the avocado mixture.
