Eating well is as important to your overall health as taking the time to be physically active and engage in activities that support your mental wellbeing.
Eating the daily recommended amount and types of food will help you:
- meet your needs for vitamins, minerals and other nutrients,
- reduce your risk of developing obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, certain types of cancer and osteoporosis and
- contribute to your overall health and vitality.
