Your diet prescription

Whether you have asthma or not, eating a nutritious, balanced diet is one of the key things you can do to look after your body. The general rule of thumb is to eat a large amount of plant foods, a medium amount of animal foods and only small amounts of saturated fat, salt, sugar and alcohol.
