A well balanced diet provides all the energy you need to keep active during the day and provides all the nutrients needed for your body to grow and repair, as well as keeping you strong and healthy.
Consuming plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy can help to keep your heart healthy and will reduce your risk of heart disease by maintaining a healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Too much salt and saturated fats can lead to high blood pressure and cholesterol.
Eating healthy and exercising regularly can help to lose excess weight and maintain a healthier body weight.

Starting your day with a balanced healthy breakfast can stop you from becoming hungry too quickly during the day and stop the urge to grab fast unhealthy food at lunch.
