Head to your local market

YOU may think the supermarket is the best place to go to get your weekly food products to feed your family.

It’s convenient but is it healthy?

A senior food policy officer this week offered their advice to News Limited newspapers and believed that supermarket aisles are filled with lots of sugary snacks that are just as bad as a McDonald’s cheeseburger.

Health food aisles have risen significantly because of this in recent years.

Some supermarkets didn’t have even have a health good aisle as recent as three years ago.

Now they’re one of the most popular sections of the supermarket.

And a lot of us get sucked into buying what we think are fantastic, healthy cereals – but end up being full of saturated fat.

“A 50g Naytura Yoghurt, Almond and Peach bar from the Woolworths has more saturated fat and total fat than a McDonald’s cheeseburger,” Clare Hughes, senior food policy officer with consumer group Choice, told News Limited.

A spokesman for Woolworths supermarkets said:

“There’s a big focus on gluten-free, dairy-free, organic and natural foods, but not specifically health foods,” a spokesman said.

Markets are generally the best place to go. You know the ones who yell out $2 dollar a kilo. They have the best home grown products on the market; natural is an under statement.

Meats, fruits and veges or whatever you need.
