Nutrition is getting the food we need to grow and stay healthy throughout life. Poor nutrition means we lack the food we need to grow and stay healthy.
Every day we make choices about the food we eat. These choices make a big difference to our health and how we feel.
When people eat healthy, they have more energy, feel better, and reduce the risk of getting many diseases, like:
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Some cancers
- High blood pressure
- Osteoporosis or brittle bones
