If you are in a hurry and find you have limited time for preparing a meal, you can still choose healthy low fat options. Tips for Choosing convenience meals  

Try not to have convenience meals more than three times a week, as they tend to be high In fat and sugar  

  • Serve them with extra vegetables and salad    
  • Choose low fat options e.g. ‘healthy eating’ or ‘lean cuisine’ or ‘weight watchers’. If the meal services two, ensure that only half is eaten, or save it for another meal.
