  • Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, with their skin on.
  • Include more pulses in your diet (pulses include all beans, peas and lentils)
  • Aim For 30g fibre per day!
  • It’s tricky to quantify how much fibre a dinner should contain as it depends what else you’ve eaten that day, but aiming for at least 7.5g of fibre at dinner time along with 2 other high fibre snacks and meals should bring you close to your 30g per day target.
