Nutrition

Good health is fundamental to leading a full and active life and getting the right nutrition is an important step towards good health: a healthy body and a healthy mind.

Healthy eating is about maintaining a balanced diet. This means eating foods from all the different food groups in the right amounts. By being aware of your nutritional needs and through learning about foods and food additives, you can ensure you and your family will be as healthy as can be; you sleep well, have enough mental and physical energy to fulfil your daily tasks and suffer less ailments.

The word diet is often used to describe an eating plan intended to aid weight loss. However, diet really refers to the foods a person eats during the day or week. The more balanced and nutritious the diet, the healthier the person will be. A balanced diet means eating the right amount of foods, in the right quantities and from all food groups. You wouldn’t put diesel into a car that uses petrol; in the same way, if we eat the wrong things, we lack energy and focus, whereas the right nutrients means we run at optimum.

The benefits of a balanced diet are numerous. No single food contains everything the body needs so it is important to eat a wide variety. The right amount of vitamins and nutrients can increase life expectancy by keeping the heart and body healthy as well as preventing many illnesses or indeed helping the body overcome illness.
