Alesha's meals feature lots of vegetables, grains and pulses with the added benefit of the healthy fats and protein from seafood. So that could also explain how she maintains her energy levels during her busy work schedule!

Her two daughters Azura, six, and Anaya, one – whom she shares with Azuka Ononye - also appear to love her healthy meals. See what's on the menu at the former Mis-Teeq singers house…

What does Alesha Dixon eat for breakfast?

Her breakfast meal largely depends on how she plans to spend the day ahead, but she told Women's Health: "I always have a ginger shot." The wellness drink is believed to help reduce inflammation and soothe digestive issues, so it's the perfect way to start the day.

When Alesha's got a gruelling workout planned, she'll follow it up with a filling meal that will keep her energy levels up, such as porridge with sliced banana and almond milk or a poached egg. Otherwise, avocado on toast or half a grapefruit are her go-to meals, along with green tea, water and smoothies. 

What does Alesha Dixon eat for lunch?

Soups and salads are Alesha's favourite lunch dishes. "I love salads and lean fish and when I can I eat sashimi and sushi. I'm now a pescatarian. Also, I love roasted vegetables, avocado and aubergine as well," she told the Daily Star back in 2013.

The doting mum shared a sweet photo of daughter Anaya enjoying broccoli

A recent photo the 41-year-old shared on Instagram showed her youngest daughter Anaya giggling after a meal containing lots of broccoli - with the evidence all over her face and tray table. So a love of veggies clearly runs in the family!

What does Alesha Dixon eat for dinner?

As well as pasta and spicy foods, Alesha has been open about her love of Jamaican food  a cuisine that reminds her of her childhood. While she said her brother is a great cook, she also loves to whip up Jamaican dishes when she's in the kitchen, so we imagine ackee and saltfish and homemade coleslaw are some of her specialities. "It's the food I grew up eating and it's probably the food that I'm best at doing," she told Matalan.

The mum-of-two often chooses to eat a lot of vegetarian meals. "I’m a pescetarian so dinner might be salmon with green beans and sweet potato. But I have been cutting back lately – now we know that fish can contain plastics and microbeads, it’s no longer necessarily the healthier choice," she explained, before admitting to Women's Health she would swap her salmon for tofu, quinoa and stir-fried vegetables.

What does Alesha Dixon eat for dessert?

Anaya was treated to an incredible cake on her first birthday

Just like the rest of us, Alesha loves a treat occasionally, whether that's a glass of wine, strawberry cheesecake or Maltesers – and after celebrating Anaya's first birthday with a huge show-stopping cake, we'd like to think the TV star enjoyed a slice, too! 

Alesha previously revealed she credits her kids for helping her limit her unhealthy eating habits. "The first two or three weeks of lockdown all I did was bake and drink wine, then I said, 'Nah, I can’t do this for three months,'" The Mirror reported. "Having children is what keeps me sane. There’s always that part of me that says, ‘You’ve got to keep it together for your girls.’ If I didn’t have them I’d ­probably drink more wine."
