So why you should make healthy food choices?

Eating a healthy, balanced diet provides nutrients to your body. These nutrients give you energy and keep your heart beating, your brain active, and your muscles working.

Nutrients also help build and strengthen bones, muscles, and tendons and also regulate body processes, such as blood pressure.

Good nutrition can lower your risk of developing a range of chronic diseases. For example, eating more fruit and vegetables can help lower blood pressure and may lower your risk of certain types of cancer (such as colorectal, breast, lung and prostate cancer). Eating less saturated fat may also lower your risk of heart disease.

Healthy eating can also help people that already have some types of disease or illness such as diabetes, high cholesterol and blood pressure. And, of course, improving your eating habits will contribute to you achieving and maintaining a healthy weight.

Try to achieve a balance with the foods you eat and include lots of variety and remember, all things in moderation.

How do you get started on healthy eating?

Healthy eating starts with learning new ways to eat, such as adding more fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and cutting back on foods that have a lot of fat, salt, and sugar.

A change to healthier eating also includes learning about balance, variety, and moderation.

Aim for balance. Most days, eat from each food group—grains, protein foods, vegetables and fruits, and dairy. Listen to your body. Eat when you’re hungry. Stop when you feel satisfied.
Look for variety. Be adventurous. Choose different foods in each food group. For example, don’t reach for an apple every time you choose a fruit. Eating a variety of foods each day will help you get all the nutrients you need.
Practice moderation. Don’t have too much or too little of one thing. All foods, if eaten in moderation, can be part of healthy eating. Even sweets can be okay.

  1. I’m glad they collaborated this video together, I didn’t know that obesity could be such a serious thing.

  2. Whilst, yes, teaching a child bad eating habits whilst young is not very good for the child, there comes a point in their life where they become responsible for their own health.

    If someone hasn’t figured out that being a fat tub of lard is bad for you by the age of eighteen, and hasn’t started to do something about it by then, don’t blame the parent; blame the person themselves. It’s a bit much to be blaming Mommy for being a land-whale when you’re 32 years old. You’re a big boy or girl now. You can make your own decisions. So, make them. And live with the consequences.
