nutritional balance
This chart shows the proportions and types of foods needed for a healthy
balanced diet. Healthy eating is about variety, and no single food should
be avoided. Include foods from the largest groups more frequently on
your menus. Foods from the smaller groups should be served less often.

For more information contact

Fruit & vegetables
Serve with all main meals, desserts & snacks to help
achieve recommended ‘5-A-DAY’.
Vary the mix; ratatouille and fruit salads are a great way to
include variety on your menu and hassle-free for service.
Introduce fruit smoothies; popular with children and
adults alike.
Great source of vitamins and minerals.

Meat, fish & alternatives
Serve a source of protein with all main meals; beans, pulses,
nuts and Quorn® for vegetarians.
Trim meat to keep fat to a minimum.
Grill and oven bake wherever possible.
Choose leaner cuts of meat; skinless chicken breast, turkey,
pork and beef where trimmed.

Foods high in fat and/or sugar
Serve occasionally as treats.
Use reduced fat and sugar alternatives where appropriate.
Add fruit and vegetables where possible, or use as additional
garnish to achieve plate coverage for smaller portions.
Offer sauces, dips and dressings on the side, providing
customers a choice.

Bread, rice, potatoes & pasta
Serve with every main meal and snack; should provide
a third of a meal or snack.
Use wholegrain wherever possible.
Bread with reduced salt is a healthier option .
Offer a non-fried alternative.
Carbohydrates provide nutrients such as fibre and B vitamins.

Milk & dairy
Use low fat/reduced fat versions.
Crème fraîche and yogurt are great alternatives for adding
flavour and texture to sauces and lower in fat compared
with cream.
Use smaller amounts of strong flavoured cheese in cooking.
Use semi-skimmed milk for most cooking and in drinks.
Offer butter portions on the side, so customers have
a choice.
Source of calcium.

Working hard to make
food healthier
Brakes continuously reviews and improves its products wherever possible,
and we work closely with many organisations including the Food
Standards Agency (FSA), The Department of Health (DOH) and the School
Food Trust (SFT) on a number of important health and nutrition issues.

                                    HVOs can be a major source of industrial trans fats, and consumption of

A healthier margin
Research increasingly shows that consumers want more healthier choices
on menus and additional information about their food when dining out
of home. This provides an ideal opportunity for caterers to improve sales
and boost margins.

                                   67% of consumers want
                                   healthier choices on menus                                           1

                                                          Grill where possible, choose vegetable
                                                          oils, switch to semi or skimmed milk, and
                                                          offer sauces on the side
                                                          Highlight healthier meals
                                                          Use justifiable claims, such as ‘low in fat’,
                                                          on your menus (see Brakes labels for
                                                          nutritional values)
                                                          Start to put indicative calorie values
                                                          of dishes on menus
So what does this mean for caterers?
It appears that consumer demand for both healthier
food choices and nutritional information is going to
increase further and those caterers who adjust cooking
methods, review their menus and include nutritional
information are likely to benefit first from these
consumer trends.
