Less than 5g sugars per 100g.
The NHS recommends that a healthy balanced diet that is low in sugar is important. Eating fewer sugary foods such as sweets, cakes and biscuits is a good start, but it’s also good to know that we offer a range of almost 200 products that contain less than 5g of sugars per 100g – clearly marked with our LS symbol. What’s more, most of our low fat dishes are also low in sugar – making it even easier to make healthier choices.
3% fat or less per serving.
NHS guidelines advise reducing your overall fat intake. If you’re following a low fat diet, our range includes dishes with 3% fat or less per serving, clearly marked with our heart symbol.
NHS guidelines suggest trying to swap saturated fats for foods with a low or reduced content of saturated fatty acids, which contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. These ‘good fats’ are found in nuts and plant oils – so you could try swapping butter for olive based spreads, or cooking with vegetable oil instead of lard. If you’re trying to cut down on saturated fat specifically, you can check the nutritional information that’s provided with all our products to see how many grams of fat per portion consist of saturates.
Less than 400 calories for a meal and less than 200 calories for a dessert.
For those trying to lose weight, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) states that the average person would need to consume 600 calories less each day to shed the pounds.
The good news is, watching your weight means you needn’t miss out on tasty, satisfying food as we offer over 150 low calorie dishes, all with our tick symbol clearly displayed next to them.
We also offer a wide selection of Mini Meals in a smaller portion size, usually around 240g.
Free from meat, fish and their derivatives. These dishes may contain dairy products such as milk, cheese or eggs.

Low to moderate salt dishes, containing 0.3g or less of salt per 100g.
Reducing consumption of sodium contributes to the maintenance of normal blood pressure - 75% of the salt we eat is already in everyday foods such as bread, processed meats and many breakfast cereals. Adults should eat no more than 6g of salt a day – that's around one teaspoon, and one easy way to eat less of it is to stop adding salt to your food during cooking and not have it at the dinner table. We offer a selection of specially developed Low Salt dishes without compromising on flavour
