Okay, so maybe a little more calorific and fatty than my regular meals, however it is relatively low in salt (half the amount than that of a Subway cheesy nacho portion, which is also much smaller).

Compared with nachos made with regular beef and full fat cheese of the same portions, we have cut this meal down from a whopping 51g of fat to 26g, 19g of saturated fat to 6.6g, and 1.6g of salt to 1.3g. It also cuts out just over 200 calories, so is a much healthier version of this treat food!

It also includes 2 of your 5 a day (broccoli and tomatoes), and another half if counting the onion.
