content pillars

The food and nutrition landscape is fast-paced, and constantly changing and evolving. We keep our readers up-to-date with the very latest in health and food news, delivered in a practical and easy-to-understand tone.

We print science-backed advice, stories and commentary from industry experts to help our readers live and feel well. We cover a range of topics and health conditions, such as weight loss, diabetes, heart disease and gut health.

HFG recipes are unique. Our recipe writers work with qualified dietitians to develop all of our meals. We provide a nutritional analysis for every recipe, and we test each meal twice to ensure it works and tastes great!

Every month our dietitian scours supermarket shelves to find the healthiest and tastiest new products. Our readers turn to our pages for trusted shopping advice and rely on our practical guides when at the supermarket.

Healthy eating changes should be practical, enjoyable and sustainable, not restrictive and unsociable.
