  • Why Is It Important To Eat Breakfast?

    Breakfast is often said to be the most important meal of the day. However, it’s the meal we are most likely to skip...

    Breakfast breaks your overnight fast. Hence it’s really important to have a good breakfast as this kick starts your metabolism, warms you up, boosts your concentration, increases energy levels and maintains steady blood sugar. Breakfast can also expand the range of nutrients in your diet and help you reach your 5-a-day. Continue reading

  • Winter Specials Range

    During winter it is often more difficult to get out and about due to poor weather – it’s colder and can often bring ice, snow and even floods.

    A hot meal and a hot drink helps to keep you warm especially over the colder months. Age UK recommends you have at least one hot meal each day.

    At Oakhouse Foods, we provide a full range of meals and groceries that can be delivered straight to your door by our friendly delivery drivers, making this difficult time of year easier and saving you time. Continue reading

  • Eating For Overall Good Health

    Eating well for good health and staying fit are important no matter what your age.

    Eating well means you’re more likely to feel healthier, stay active for longer and protect yourself against illness. It’s never too late to start eating healthily, and a healthy diet doesn’t have to be boring or expensive.

    It also doesn’t mean going without your favourite treats, although it may mean eating them less often or in smaller portions.

    As you grow older, your metabolism slows down, so you need fewer calories than before. Your body also needs more of certain nutrients. That means it’s more important than ever to choose foods that give you the best nutritional value.

    Oakhouse Foods insist on wholesome ingredients and because all our dishes are freshly frozen they are full of goodness, so you can eat our meals with confidence. Continue reading

    In September, we launched this year’s Extra Mile Award. Our annual award recognises the dedication of many of our delivery drivers who go above and beyond the call of duty. We have received hundreds of nominations for our hardworking drivers across the country. We really loved hearing all the positive comments about our drivers.

    From previous years’ awards, the standard has been set very high. However, there was one clear winner in 2017 who stood out from the crowd. That was Rob Finnigan, from the Kent region, who has proved himself to be one of our most hardworking and popular drivers.
