HCC highlight the importance of balanced diets ahead of exam season

Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Promotion Wales (HCC) are highlighting the role of red meat in a healthy diet and lifestyle as thousands of school pupils and students across Wales prepare to sit exams this summer.

HCC’s Consumer Executive, Elwen Roberts, explained: “Diet and lifestyle are important factors for parents and students to consider when preparing to undertake exams. Having nutritious and balanced meals including nutrient dense proteins such as Welsh red meat can be a key way for parents to support learners throughout stressful exam and revision periods.”

Welsh red meat can play an important role in a balanced diet and offers many nutrients including natural protein, iron, zinc and vitamin B12. The complete protein found in PGI Welsh Lamb and PGI Welsh Beef can help individuals feel satiated and help avoid the temptation of sugary or salty snacks whilst the iron found in red meat can be easily absorbed and prevents tiredness and fatigue.

Elwen commented: “We know that PGI Welsh Lamb and PGI Welsh Beef offer a wealth of benefits to human health, many of which particularly helpful during exam season. Vitamin B12, for example, can help with energy release whilst zinc aid immune system health, both of which are key for students undertaking exams.”

 “We have a wide array of quick, nutritious and family-friendly Welsh Lamb and Welsh Beef recipes which would be perfect for parents, students and families. I would recommend dishes such as Welsh Beef Bolognese or Welsh Lamb tikka wraps which have an ideal balance of protein, carbohydrate and vegetables for the whole family to enjoy.”
