Good nutrition and physical activity are important habits for you, your family and your friends to practice for life-long health.

Eating healthful foods and exercising at every stage of life will help you:

  • enjoy great tasting foods
  • build physical strength and endurance
  • feel your best and work productively
  • reduce your risk of health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer

Healthy habits should be:

  • REALISTIC - Small changes work best.
  • FLEXIBLE - Don't worry about one meal or one day. Balance your physical activity and what you eat over several days.
  • SENSIBLE - Enjoy food, just don't overdo it.
