It has been recommended that you need to be eating a minimum of 30g of fibre per day1. Fibre is found in…

  • High in fibre bread such as Hovis® Wholemeal (5.4g of fibre in 2 medium slices), Hovis Granary® Wholemeal (6.4g of fibre in two slices), Hovis® Wholemeal Farmhouse (6.0g of fibre in 2 slices) and Hovis Seed Sensations® Wholemeal (a whopping 11g of fibre in 2 slices)
  • Wholegrain cereals - wheat, oats, barley, rye, quinoa, bulgar, teff - make sure they are the ‘wholegrain’ variety
  • Fruits and vegetables all contain fibre. Often the fibre is in the skins of the fruit or veg so wash and eat them with the skin on to get the most fibre
  • Beans - baked beans, kidney beans, black beans, pinto beans - just about any kind!
  • Nuts & seeds
