Fears over head injury

I am a carer for James who is a 24-year-old with learning disabilities and he would like to eat a healthier diet.

Do you have any suggestions on how I can support him?

It is great that James is interested in his diet as eating the right kinds of food can have a big effect on a person's health.

The NHS inform website has an Easy Info zone which has printable Easy Read material that you can share with him. It offers guidance on what a portion size actually means.

These include:

l 1 heaped tablespoon of small fruit such as berries.

l 3 heaped tablespoons of vegetables.

l Matchbox-sized piece of cheese.

l 1 medium slice of bread.

You will find there is also information on swapping certain foods for lower fat options on the website.
