Healthy Eating

Good food is central to a healthy, happy life.  At Heinz Wattie’s we believe that good food should taste great and be good for you. Our nutrition policy is to provide tasty, convenient meal solutions, responsibly. This means responsible product development, as well as responsible marketing of our products to adults and children. 

We set specific nutrient criteria to guide our product development team. And in certain categories, we offer alternative variants that are lower in sodium, sugar or fat. We also ensure our products, ingredients, labelling and claims are safe, factual and always backed by scientific evidence and comply with the strict New Zealand standards.

At Heinz Wattie’s we encourage following the Ministry of Health healthy eating guidelines  which recommend eating a balanced diet from the following 4 food groups every day:

  • Vegetables and Fruit (at least 3 serves of vegetables and 2 serves of fruit every day)
  • Wholegrain bread and cereals (at least 6 servings each day)
  • Milk and milk products (at least 2 servings a day)
  • Meat or alternatives - legumes, fish, chicken, eggs etc (at least 1 serving each day)

Balancing your diet with physical activity will help you maintain a healthy body weight. We also encourage maintaining balance in your life between healthy eating, exercise, work, rest and time with family, friends and doing things you enjoy!
