Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are a crucial macronutrient that provides a major source of fuel for many vital organs - in particular the brain.

For healthy eating, choose unrefined sources of carbohydrates such as wholegrain breads, pastas, cereals and brown rice, beans and legumes, fruits and starchy vegetables – which generally also contain a mix of other vitamins and minerals too. Try to avoid the more refined and energy-dense forms of carbohydrates such as lollies and other sweets and soft drinks as these do not have high nutritional value.
