Unhealthy 'health' foods

Published: 11th May 2016

Shopping for healthy foods can be a minefield. When we are in a rush we often don't have time to check the nutritional information and rely on the packaging to determine whether a product is healthy or not.

Diabetes.co.uk have put together this blog which shows which foods are marketed as healthy, but can actually be high in sugar or fat.

How to avoid these foods - cook from scratch so you know exactly what has gone into your food, but if you are on the go make sure you read the packaging carefully!

Do you think healthy food is boring?
