Obesity, diabetes, heart disease, rotten teeth, high blood pressure… All of this is possible when you don’t eat healthy. It’s not always easy to eat healthy when there are so many temptations, but it’s possible – and here are some ways to help you:

It’s important to always start your morning with a healthy breakfast to fuel your day. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it’s where you get your main energy supply for the day. Also it’s important to drink lots of water to stay hydrated. Dehydration can lead to headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and cloudy brain function. You should try to eat 5 to 9 servings of fruits and vegetables daily, whether at mealtimes or in between. Even though snacking has gotten a bad image, the right kind of snacks can be an important part of your diet. They can provide energy in the middle of the day or when you exercise. A healthy snack between meals can also help your hunger and keep you from overeating at meal time.You should also limit packaged foods and read labels so you’ll know what you’re putting into your body.When shopping, choose healthy foods and avoid bringing junk food back into your home. School meals – breakfast, lunch, after-school meal program.

  It’s not good to skip meals and you should use portion control so you have a better chance of not over eating when you try to eat in moderation.Portion control is eating certain amounts of food. Listen to your body. If something don’t feel right then it’s not right. You are what you eat.
