There is so much stuff and nonsense swirling around the internet about diet and nutrition, it is no wonder people are confused about what a balanced healthy diet looks like.
The simple way to learn about healthy eating is to take a look at the eatwell guide available here on this link
It is an illustrative guide to the type and quantity of food we need as adults every day to provide the nutrients necessary to keep us healthy.
It is based upon the current best available evidence and it is all we need to know!
Some people like complicated regimes and negativity, focusing upon on what not to eat rather than embracing the rule of everything in moderation.
The guide shows us that there is absolutely nothing we shouldn’t eat but we should be aim for balance in our daily diet.
If we choose one section of the plate to concentrate on, we can learn the right amount to eat and then share this knowledge with our family and friends. For example 5 a day fruit and veg is well known by many of us and we need to actually put it into practice in order for the benefit to our health to be realised. So, say we manage just 1 or even 2 fruit and veg each day. If we try to take just 1 more helping each day, over time this will become a routine and then we can increase our intake a little more again.
I think of how far my toddler granddaughter can walk now in the few months since she took her first step. Healthy eating can be like this too, with small steps leading to great strides.
Learn about healthy eating and spread the word, keep you and
your loved ones healthy and well for the rest of their lives.
