Make these 5 healthy trolley swops the next time you buy groceries:

Sweets and chocolates Rather fill your shopping trolley with a variety of fruit to snack on. Fruit is a healthier alternative because it doesn’t contain any fat and most types are high in fibre.

Biscuits are high in fat and sugar. A better choice would be high-fibre crackers, like Provitas.

Cream cheese and high-fat cheeses Substitute cream cheese with low-fat or fat-free cottage cheeses, and go for Mozzarella instead of Cheddar.

White bread To increase your fibre intake and prevent high blood glucose levels, choose wholewheat and low-GI bread.

Crisps and dips The fat content of crisps is very high – up to 35 percent. Rather snack on homemade popcorn and unsalted nuts. Fresh vegetables are great to dip into homemade dip. Combine equal quantities of either plain yoghurt or low-fat cottage cheese with low-fat mayonnaise
