Classic recipes made healthier
Classic recipes… with a healthy twist!
Everyone has a list of go-to meals. Recipes that are satisfying, easy-to-make and have been in the family forever. Welcome to our collection of classics made healthier, where the classic recipes you’ve always loved get a healthier, delicious update. With WW, making healthier choices doesn’t mean missing out on the foods you love—even hearty, wholesome favourites.
Classic dishes become classics for a reason—they’re full of flavour, easy to make and everyone loves them! But what these dishes often have in common is the use of high-fat, high-sodium and high-SmartPoints. So we gathered our team of dietitians, recipe developers, and content experts to reformulate and create an ultimate collection of delicious classic recipes with a healthy spin the whole family will love.

Healthy cooking method tweaks
It’s not just what you cook, but how you cook that can make a big difference to the SmartPoints of any dish. One of the simplest ways to reduce fat and SmartPoints is to minimise the amount of oil you use when making a meal. By using one of these smarter cooking methods, you can reduce your oil use by up to 100%, which will significantly reduce the cost, clean-up time and SmartPoints for any recipe!
