A nutritious diet is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
The food you eat provides the fuel your body needs to grow and function properly. Since your stomach can only hold a certain amount of food each day, it is important to fill it with a variety of healthy foods. No food is bad for you. The goal is to eat healthier foods more often and those excessive salt, sugar or unhealthy forms of fat less often.
The easiest way to discover a food’s nutritional value is to read its label. All packaged foods must have labels that tell us what is in the food and how nutritious it is. There is a lot of information provided on a food label, so knowing how to decipher what you are reading can be challenging. It’s always a good idea to check with your doctor about recommendations that make sense for you, but these basic guidelines are a good place to start a conversation.
