Kickstart your healthy eating regime

With Fiona Hunter

The Souper Swap Challenge is an excellent way to kickstart your healthy eating regime. A bowl of soup is a nutritious and filling lunch and has much less fat and calories than many other lunchtime options, says Fiona Hunter, highly respected, experienced and qualified nutritionist, food writer and broadcaster.

“With some types of soup contributing up to three portions of vegetables, reaching your five a day target should be a doddle. The Souper Swap Challenge will also help you save you time (no more queuing at the sandwich shop) and money.”

A balanced lunch should include some protein, carbohydrate, a small amount of fat, plenty of vegetables and some fruit. 

Tip 1 - Swap and save

A basic chicken sandwich contains: 350-400 calories, 10g fat, £2.50-£3.50


Baxters Hearty Chicken and Vegetable Soup: 184 calories, 1.6 g fat, £1.49 (approx)

Tip 2 - Stuck for ideas

  • 25g garlic and herb croutons - adds 116 cals (approx)
  • 10g ( 2 tsp) pesto - adds 40 cals (approx)
  • 10g ( 2tsp) sunflower seeds - 59 cals (approx)

Tip 3 - Watching your weight

A bowl of soup is an excellent choice for lunch if you are trying to shift those extra pounds that crept on over the festive period.  Soup score high on the satiety index – a scoring system which determines how full you feel after eating certain foods. Research from Pennsylvania State University found that dieters who ate soup twice a day were more successful at losing weight than those who didn’t but more importantly they were more successful at maintaining their weight loss.

Forty-one soups in the Baxter’s range contain less than 300 calories per serving and 22 soups in the range contain less than 200 calories per serving.
