What are healthy choices?
You hear the word “healthy” everywhere these days, promoting everything from food products to weight-loss programs. So what do we mean when we talk about making healthy choices?
Being healthy means not being sick or hurt. But when it comes to eating and drinking, making the healthier choice means choosing food and drinks from a range of food groups that are full of nutrients. Making healthy food choices also includes planning ahead, cooking, budgeting and food safety.
Each weekly newsletter in the series focuses on a different part of making healthy choices such as learning about each food group, choosing nutritious ingredients, making the most of food products and shopping for groceries.
Every newsletter will also include a simple, low-cost recipe and a “Did you know?” healthy tip.
