5 nutrition tips for the festive season

Dec 17, 2019Latest News, Our Services


The holiday season is just around the corner and you will find that during this time it can be easy to get caught up in the celebratory spirit and overindulge. Our Nutrition and Dietetics team has put together some great nutrition tips for the festive season ahead:


1. Keep your eye on portion sizes.
It is often not what you eat, but how much that can lead to overindulgence.

2. Think about your drink.
Perhaps one less alcoholic drink than normal AND mix up your drinks with non-alcoholic variations such as water or soda water.

3. Include more plant-based foods in your meals.
They add colour and texture along with providing lots of vitamins, minerals, and fibre.

4. Limit the number of starters/entrees you eat.
Especially if you are planning to have a full meal later. Or if you do have a lot of appetizers only have a light meal after.

5. If you are having a buffet, choose the smaller size plate.
Look at the choices first before you start filling your plate and take only what you need to feel satisfied.
