Food for life

Opting for a balanced, adequate and varied diet is an important step towards a happy and healthy lifestyle.  Vitamins and minerals are vital for immunity and healthy development and a healthy diet can protect the human body against certain types of diseases (Source – World Health Organisation – Europe Office).  Remember to:-

Choose from the 5 major food groups:-

  • vegetables, legumes/beans, nuts and seeds
  • fruit
  • lean meats, poultry, fish, eggs and tofu
  • grain / cereals – wholegrains and high fibre
  • milk, yoghurt, cheese or diary substitutes high in calcium

Choose a variety of foods:-

  • proteins, fruits and vegetables each day of the week.  A colourful plate provides a variety of nutrients for a good healthy diet
  • water should be your main form of hydration and consumed daily
  • limit occasional / non essential foods ie processed or manufactured products, desserts, lollies, fruit juices and sweets
  • limit salt intake – add only after serving and tasting your meal
  • healthy fats in small quantities / unsaturated plant based fats

Understand the portions you require for your needs and activities and if you are unsure, seek advice from a qualified dietitian.
