The Home Economics Bit

Did you know?

According to the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute 80% of Irish people do not eat enough fibre.

Fibre is found in unrefined carbohydrate foods, such as wholemeal flour and bread, oats, fruits and vegetables, beans and lentils. It is essential in our diets because it aids digestion and helps to prevent constipation and other bowel disorders. Fibre gives a prolonged feeling of fullness which can help to prevent overeating and consequent weight gain. A high fibre diet has also been associated with a lower risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
