We all make food and lifestyle choices each day. These choices impact the health and wellbeing of ourselves, our families and our communities. There are many factors that influence our food choices, such as taste, cost, availability, advertising, cooking skills, and our knowledge about food and nutrition. Healthy eating is more than the food on your plate. It's a pattern on eating a variety of foods that supports our physical, social and mental wellbeing. Healthy eating may reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease but also support the management of a disease or illness.
