Potatoes, bread, rice, pasta and other starchy carbohydrates

These foods are a good source of nutrients, energy and fibre and should make up just over a third of your diet.

They're one of the 5 main food groups.

How much should I be eating?

Starchy foods should make up just over a third of your food intake. You should base each meal around these.

Wherever possible, choose wholegrain foods as they are:
  • higher in fibre and nutrients
  • digested more slowly and so will keep you feeling full for longer

When preparing these foods, limit the amount of added fat by using unsaturated oils (olive or sunflower) or lower-fat spreads.
