Low sugar recipes to inspire healthy living on World Health Day

On the 7th April every year, World Health Day is celebrated globally to disseminate knowledge and raise awareness about issues effecting human health around the world.

This year diabetes is the specific focus of the campaign. About 350 million people worldwide have diabetes. That figure is predicted to rise to more than double in the next 20 years, even though type 2 diabetes, which accounts for 90% of all cases, is largely preventable. Simple lifestyle measures have been shown to be effective in preventing or delaying it’s onset, which overtime can seriously compromise every major organ system in the body, causing heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure and more.


Eating a healthy diet is one of the easiest, quickest ways to reduce the risk of diabetes. The best foods for anyone with or at risk of diabetes contain minimal added sugar and combine protein and/or healthy fats with high quality carbohydrates.

At Utility we're serious about health & wellbeing. Here's some of our favourite healthy, low-sugar recipes to inspire heathy living this World Health Day.

Your customer service has been fantastic. I'm seriously impressed. Really pleased to be able to place the bigger order and make your time worthwhile. I think I need to send you a medal!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
