Eating healthy food is a good way to stay healthy

The key is to eat a balanced meal. Here are some tips to keep in mind.

  • Choose different foods from each of the food groups. Five a Day.
  • Different types of food give our bodies different vitamins and minerals we need.
  • Eat balanced meals and snacks. What is a balanced meal? It has protein, starch and non-starchy vegetables.

Starch

Eat no more than two or three servings at each meal.

Vegetables

Eat three to five servings of vegetables each day. Raw or cooked vegetables also fill you up and provide fiber that your body needs.

Fruits

Eat two to four servings of fruits each day. Fresh fruit in season is best or canned fruit with no added sugar.

Dairy

Eat two to three servings of dairy each day. Choose 1% low-fat milk, light yogurt or low-fat cheese.

Protein

Eat two servings each day. Eat fish at least once per week. Go meatless and eat beans one day each week.

Fats and Sweets

Eat smaller amounts of these foods. Cook with healthier oils like olive, canola or peanut oils.
