The ‘Eatwell Plate’

The ‘Eatwell Plate’ shows how to manage a healthy diet which includes the correct amounts of nutrients. It includes:

  • fruit and vegetables
  • starchy foods (such as cereals, potatoes, rice, bread or pasta)
  • some milk and dairy products (or alternatives such as soya milk with added calcium)
  • some protein foods (such as meat, fish, eggs and pulses)
  • a small amount of foods high in fat and/or sugar


You could talk to our IBD team if you are finding it hard to manage foods from all five groups.
