The good news is that chips can be part of a healthy balanced
diet. For example, did you know?
- An average portion of battered cod and chips has fewer calories,
at least half the saturated fat and just a tenth of the salt
of a cheese and tomato pizza
- An average portion of battered cod & chips contains at
least a quarter of the fat and a third fewer calories than a
serving of either chicken tikka masala & pilau rice, or sweet
and sour pork and egg-fried rice
- Thick chips absorb less oil than thin ones, so chunky chips
are a lower-fat option
- You can get almost a third of your daily vitamin C from a portion
of chips. A 100g serving of oven chips contains 12mg of
vitamin C - that’s double the amount of vitamin C
in an apple
Did you know that chips are made from potatoes?
Results from a survey, conducted by the British Potato Council,
showed that 1 in 3 women admitted to not knowing oven chips were
made from potatoes when in fact some oven chips have just two
ingredients - potatoes and sunflower oil.
