Takeaway makeovers

Posted 7 Apr 2021.

Many takeaway favourites are packed full of cheap ingredients like added sugar, saturated fat and salt. These can leave us hungry and don't provide the nutrients we need to keep our bodies running smoothly. Too much fast food is bad for our health and our wallet.

Skip the junk and enjoy all your favourites - burgers, pizza, special fried rice and fish and chips - by giving them a healthy home-cooked twist.
