Get more fibre by eating crisps and frozen yoghurt! | Daily Mail Online

Most of us know we should include fibre in our diet, but as a nation we simply don’t eat enough of it.

Despite its many health benefits, which include reduced risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers, our average daily intake of fibre is just 18g – a third lower than the recommended 25g.

Under proposals from the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (who advise the Government), this target is likely to rise to 30g.

The trend for avoiding carbohydrates isn’t helping, says dietitian Sioned Quirke, a spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association.

‘I see lots of people cutting down on carbohydrate foods, such as wholemeal bread and pasta, in an attempt to lose weight, but they jeopardise their health and increase their risk of constipation and bowel conditions such as diverticulitis (where the gut wall weakens) if they don’t eat other fibre sources,’ she said.
