Amanda who is best known as a presenter on BBC Two programme ‘Something for the Weekend’ and the hit series “Spa of Embarrassing Illnesses”, joins celebrity chef James Martin and fellow nutritionists Amanda Ursell and Lyndel Costain in backing a health and nutrition campaign from Canned Food UK.
Amanda says “My ethos is all about providing simple, cost-effective ways of providing the right nutrients for ourselves and our families – and canned food sits alongside that perfectly. Many people overlook canned goods as a source of nutrition but as they are cooked in the can, the nutrients are locked in, preserving all the goodness naturally. And they also count towards your 5-A-Day.”
To mark Amanda joining the Canned Food UK team, she has contributed to a new leaflet ‘Open the Can for Healthy Eating’ providing a brief overview of the benefits of canned food, from nutrition to environmental benefits.

As a mother of four, Amanda understands the importance of providing easy and delicious ways to give your family the healthy balanced diet that canned food can offer. The no-fuss, can-venience of cans mean that you can save your time and energy as no preparation is needed, simply open the can!
The long shelf life of cans means you can store all sorts of affordable, delicious additions to classic recipes, with absolutely no wastage. What’s more, the canning process locks in all the vitamins and minerals without containing any artificial preservatives.
