    This is far from healthy

      Thanks for your comment. A healthy diet includes treat foods. Our view is, and the evidence shows, eating patterns that are too restrictive and don’t allow for any foods people enjoy having as a treat are not sustainable or sociable, and often pull people into an unhealthy diet cycle or disordered eating patterns. The dessert and sweet recipes we create are lower in sugar, energy and saturated fat than traditional versions and often higher in fibre, too.
