FOOD for thought: what’s good to eat 

  • Bread – Provides the fibre we need for good digestion 
  • Chocolate – Good in moderation. Too much makes you put on weight, but a small amount can make you feel brighter and more optimistic 
  • Alcohol – Red wine in moderation can help reduce damaging cholesterol, replacing it with a more healthier variety. However, be careful – too much wine can be harmful 
  • Salt – Your body needs salt, but not too much. It can cause high blood pressure but scientists say we should not try to live without it 
  • Fish – A regular intake of fish, particularly oily fish like sardines, kippers and mackerel, help avoid heart disease. Two fish meals a week are recommended 
  • Coffee – Many people believe it is bad for you – and too much of it is. But one or two cups a day do no harm and can help stave off the threat of stomach cancer 
  • Noodles – Both noodles and spaghetti are good for you as they contain little fat but help satisfy a healthy appetite 
  • Experts say you are unlikely to get fat by eating plates of pasta 
  • Red meat – Despite what some people say, moderate quantities of red meat are good for you. 
  • Meat is strong on iron content and if you don’t eat enough you may suffer fatigue 
  • Oysters – A plate of oysters can help stave off some of the effects of ageing
