The link between good nutrition and health is very important and cannot be ignored. Small changes in your diet can go a long way, and it’s easier than you think! Eating a healthy and balanced diet can help to ensure that your risk of diseases and serious illness are reduced. The foundation of good health includes the right amount of physical activity daily, a good social life with no bad habits like smoking, and a highly nutritious diet which means high-quality proteins, carbohydrates, heart-healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and plenty of water in the foods consumed. By taking these steps to eating healthy, you will be on your way to getting the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy, active, and strong. To sum it up, your everyday food choices determine your health — how you feel today, tomorrow and as you grow older.
