Healthy eating

Maintaining a healthy, balanced diet provides you with the energy and nutrition you need to function and is an important part of maintaining good health.

Eating a wide variety of foods in the right proportions and consuming the right amount of food and drink to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight provides protective health benefits against a range of health conditions such as coronary heart disease and stroke as well as type 2 diabetes and certain cancers including mouth, stomach, and colorectal cancer.
