Healthy Fats

Fat has several functions in our daily diets.

  • It helps maintains our brains and nervous system
  • Helps absorption of fat-soluble vitamins
  • Adds flavour to foods
  • Keeps our eyes, skin, bones and nails healthy

Healthy Fats Come From:

  • Fish and fish oil
  • Olive oil
  • Nuts
  • Avocado

To Keep Fat Intake Down:

  • Avoid fried foods
  • Bake, roast, boil or steam your food
  • Go easy on sauces, gravies, salad dressings, mayonnaise, butter and margarine
  • Try low or non-fat versions of foods (e.g. milk, yogurt, spreads, salad dressings and snack foods)

Incorporate Healthy Fats into Your Diet:

  • Have fish a few times a week
  • Add a handful of nuts or some avocado to a salad
  • Use olive oil sparingly in cooking
