Eating a healthy, balanced diet is an integral part of maintaining good health. It can help reduce our risk of developing certain cancers, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke, as well as helping us to maintain a healthy weight and support our mental health.
Nourishing our bodies
No one food contains all the nutrients we need, so it’s important to get a variety of different foods in the right proportions.
Making changes to out diet can be hard, especially when our current habits have been built up over a lifetime. It can be difficult to know how or where to begin. The people who are successful in making changes to their nutrition are the people who take one step at a time. So, pick one thing, allow yourself the time to build that new behaviour into your life, before moving on to your next goal. But you’re not alone. We’re here to support you.
