Healthy Eating

Healthy EatingHealthy eating means choosing wisely when making decisions about what and how much to eat.  Eating a variety of healthy foods and the right amount, helps to maintain a healthy body weight and reduces our risk for chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. 

There are many factors that influence the foods we eat, such as cost, availability, advertising, lack of time, and our knowledge about foods and what is good and not so good for us.  By first identifying and then addressing the factors that influence our eating habits the most, we can work on improving these habits and our overall health.
