Healthy eating is essential to maintain general health. A poor diet can lead to increased risk of developing
lifestyle conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and weight gain.
Eating healthy also has a positive benefit on mental wellbeing, self-esteem and confidence.
The use of cars and public transport has significantly reduced how much physical activity we do. We also eat more
fast foods, enjoy bigger portions and have a wider availability of supermarket multi-buy offers, which has led to an increase
in unhealthier diets and excess weight.
But even with all these temptations and modern day conveniences it’s still possible to lead a healthy and happy life – a lot of it is
in the planning, and once you are used to that, it just becomes second nature.
