Health and nutrition are two issues high up on our agenda. SPAR is a strong believer in the need to provide consumers with good quality products and the relevant nutritional information to ensure a balanced, healthy diet. Within this framework, all International SPAR Own Brand products feature labels with detailed nutritional information.
Through sharing fun food facts, the SPAR Nutrition Zone aims to provide nutritional advice by breaking down the different groups in a fun way. Our SPAR Nutrition Zone materials now feature a ‘food-to-fork’ theme, reflecting our overall nutrition focus. The aim is that both current and future generations learn how healthy eating can contribute to growth and development.
This is shown through a food throwing game with a simple concept and partnered with practical information. The concept behind the throwing game encourages participants to aim a coloured ball into a colour-matching food group. Prizes can include sticker sheets, re-useable shopping bags, activity books and colouring sheets.
This group includes fresh, frozen, tinned, & dried fruits, vegetables and 100% fruit and vegetable juices. Fruits and vegetables offer vitamins, minerals and fibre, which are essential for a healthy lifestyle.
Our bodies need fats, such as unsaturated cooking oils and salad dressings, for energy, proper cell growth and development. Fats can be used in preparing or adding flavour to meals.
This group contains foods such as potatoes, pasta, rice, bread, cereals, barley, oats and other grains. All these products provide vitamins, minerals and fibre, giving us energy to get through the day.
This group contains meat, fish, eggs and dairy products, as well as nuts, legumes and other sources of vegetable protein. These foods provide vitamins and minerals that help the body to grow and repair itself.
Your body needs enough fluids to function properly. Make sure to drink enough throughout the day to keep hydrated. In addition to tea or filtered coffee (without added sugar), drink lots of water.
Some products – like desserts, savoury snacks or sugar-sweetened beverages – contain too much salt, sugar and saturated fats, or have too little fibre. Intake of these products should be limited and not consumed daily.
