Tips for healthy eating and living
To get all the nutrients you need, eat a variety from each of four main food groups:
. Vegetables and fruit – choose dark green and orange vegetables and orange fruit more often.
. Grain products – choose whole grain and enriched products more often.
. Milk products – choose lower-fat milk products more often. Calcium in milk products build strong bones.
. Meat and alternatives – choose leaner meats, poultry and fish, as well as dried peas, beans and lentils more often.
Animal foods such as meat, eggs and milk products are a natural source of vitamin B12. B-vitamins make red blood cells that keep your nervous system healthy and help your body use energy from food.
Eat healthy at work as well as at home.
