  • Increasing the fibre in your diet may help you control your weight, lower your risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease and lower the risk of some types of cancer.
  • Aim to get at least 30 grams of fibre each day. To reach this goal, you will need to have at least 5 servings of vegetables and fruit and at least 3 small servings of whole grains each day. (1 serving of vegetables is 1 cup of salad or ½ cup cooked or raw vegetables; 1 serving of fruit is ½ cup chopped or 1 medium fruit; 1 serving of whole grains is 1 slice of whole grain bread or ½ cup brown rice).
  • It’s important to increase the fibre in your diet slowly so your body can get used to it. Start with increasing the fibre in 1 meal or snack and once you’re comfortable with that, increase the fibre in another meal or snack.
