Grabbing the baked beans in the supermarket, I got upsold. Again. Faced with large cans at a cheaper price than the smaller cans, which were all I needed, price won out. And healthy portion control ran a poor second. Of course, when you’re in a hurry, and in my case, making hasty beans-on-toast, it becomes all too easy to pour the entire large can into the saucepan. And that’s just one of the ways we’re encouraged to buy more, eat more and make worse food choices. For more insights that may change the way you shop, turn to page 46. Meanwhile, seven out of 10 families are now choosing to buy gluten-free products and yet only one in 70 of us needs to avoid gluten, according to Coeliac Australia. Going gluten…

Slice watch I really appreciated your piece ‘How much fat is in that pizza slice?’ (April 2016). It seems ingrained that we eat an entire pizza to ourselves. So, it was great to see an actual recommended serving size discussed, with the option of a side salad. It would seem people really need a visual representation of what a healthy serve is. Well done! Amy Rush, WA Meal times are fun times Special thanks to your dietitian Brooke Longfield for her guide to getting young children to eat more vegies, ‘10 ways to sneak in more vegies’ (March 2016). Too often meal times can become battle times, but by planning ahead and adopting some of Brooke’s simple, creative and fun strategies, there is every chance that meal times can become pleasure times for the…

Egg-cellent news! New evidence supports the accepted scientific view that eating an egg a day does not increase your risk of heart disease. So, if you still think eggs need to be limited to just once or twice a week, it’s time for an update. The current recommendations allow you to enjoy up to six eggs a week. Get cracking now! American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2016 SCIENCE UPDATE: Coconut oil As coconut oil’s popularity continues, a recent report weighs the truth about whether it is the healthiest choice of cooking oils. The review of 21 studies has concluded that coconut oil raises cholesterol levels, although not as much as butter does. So while there is no convincing evidence to support the view that coconut oil reduces our risk of heart disease, stick…
