Healthy Living - Healthy Eating

Also in Healthy Eating:

What we eat can make a considerable difference to our health.  A balanced diet is important for everyone, whatever your age.  In Grampian we are working together to make sure that everybody can enjoy the benefits of eating a healthy diet.

A healthier diet can be achieved by:

  • Increasing the amount of fruit and vegetables we eat to at least five portions a day;

  • Reducing the amount of fat we eat, particularly saturated fat;

  • Combining healthy eating with regular physical activity;

  • Encouraging and enabling people to develop skills and knowledge that will help them to improve their diet;

  • Eating a balanced diet is a positive step we can all take towards improving our health.
