Updated: Jan 22, 2022
Every day, we make choices about the food we eat and our lifestyles. We can make choices for ourselves and our families that make a real difference to our ability to remain healthy and active now, and enjoy life to its fullest in the future.
“To learn more about healthy eating, including managing a condition, food safety, and food security you can talk to your dietitian as well”
To eat a healthy diet, you may need to make some changes like
Keep more fruits, low-fat dairy products (low-fat milk and low-fat yogurt), vegetables, and whole-grain foods at home and at work. Focus on adding healthy food to your diet, rather than just taking unhealthy foods away.
Try to eat a family meal every day at the kitchen or dining table. This will help you focus on eating healthy meals.
Buy a healthy-recipe book, and cook for yourself. Chew gum when you cook so you won't be tempted to snack on the ingredients.
Pack a healthy lunch and snacks for work. This lets you have more control over what you eat.
Put your snacks on a plate instead of eating from the package. This helps you control how much you eat.
Don't skip or delay meals, and be sure to schedule your snacks. If you ignore your feelings of hunger, you may end up eating too much or choosing an unhealthy snack. If you often feel too hungry, it can cause you to focus a lot on food.
