Healthy Eating

Healthy eating is about eating a balanced diet which contains a variety of foods. Eating poorly and becoming overweight or obese increases your risk of getting type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.

Eating a healthy, balanced diet provides nutrients to your body. These nutrients give you energy and keep your heart beating, your brain active and your muscles working.
