Diabetes shopping tips

How to be savvy in the supermarket and make healthy choices.

As with many chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and obesity, diabetes is significantly linked to lifestyle choices such as diet and exercise.

To help us reduce our risk of type 2 diabetes and better manage it through our dietary choices, Dr Cindy Pan has provided some tips and advice to help make food selection at the supermarket easier.

Reading food labels, picking items low in saturated fat, choosing whole grains, including plenty of fruits and vegetables and steering clear of sugar-based drinks are the key areas Dr Cindy Pan covers, along with a wealth of extra food ideas and tips to make informed, sensible choices.

Think twice before reaching for white rice and start your supermarket trip in the fruits and vegetables section are two simple ways we can take steps to healthier food selections.
