Healthy Eating, Healthy You

The National Nutrition Month campaign reinforces the importance of nutrition as a key component of health, along with physical activity.

  • Healthy eating helps you get the most out of life. A healthy lifestyle is the key to looking good, feeling great and being your best at work and play. It all starts with a healthy eating plan.

  • Individual needs and preferences determine your personal food choices. Match your food choices to your lifestyle and individual requirements, choosing enough to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

  • Actively pursue variety. Expand your range of choices and explore new tastes, within and among food groups. Eating a wide variety of foods not only promotes optimal nutrition, it provides the pleasurable aspects of eating.

  • Make moderation your goal -- you decide how much and how often. Healthy eating doesn't mean feeling deprived or guilty. Look at the big picture, what you eat over several days -- not just one day or one meal -- that's important.

  • Develop a personal fitness plan that fits your lifestyle. The key is to find a variety of activities you enjoy. You don't need expensive equipment or complicated fitness programs.
