Healthy Lifestyle

1.FOOD IS FUN. ENJOY IT

Sharing a meal with family and friends is a great way to enjoy food. It is fun to see other people’s choice of food - what do your friends eat? Do you try different foods every day? How many different kinds of fruit and vegetables can you spot?

3.BREAKFAST IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL

Just like a bike may become rusty if it is not used for some time, our muscles and bones need to be kept moving too. Activity is needed to keep your heart healthy and your bones strong. Try to include some form of activity every day. Just swim, run, ride a bike, play with friends outside or do some workout. It's fun!

2.GET MOVING! BE ACTIVE EVERYDAY

Just like cars cannot run without fuel, our bodies need energy to work. Especially after a night’s sleep, energy levels are low. So, whether you are off to school, or out and about at the weekend, start the day with breakfast. Plenty of carbohydrates is just the ticket: try toast or bread, or cereal with milk, fruit or yoghurt.

4.DRINK MORE WATER

Did you know that more than half of your weight is just water? So as well as giving your body all the food it needs each day to keep healthy, you need at least 5 glasses of liquids a day. It is particularly important if the weather is very hot or if you have done lots of exercise, to have plenty to drink.

5.VARIETY IS THE RECIPE FOR HEALTH

You need over 40 different nutrients (such as vitamins and minerals) every day for good health. Since there is no single food that contains them all, it is important to balance your daily choices.

6.TOO MUCH FAT IS NOT GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH

Eating too many of fatty foods might not be so good for your body. Although we need some fats to get all the nutrients we need, it is better for our health if we don’t eat too much of these foods.So, if you have a high-fat lunch, see if you can have a low-fat dinner at home.

7.CARE FOR YOUR TEETH

Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Eating foods high in sugar can play a part in tooth decay. Sugar-free chewing gum can help you keep your teeth healthy. However, the best way to keep a nice smile is to brush your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.

8.EAT VEGETABLES WITH EACH MEAL

Vegetables are the most important foods for giving us enough vitamins, minerals and fibre. We should all try to eat at least 5 servings a day. How many different kinds can you spot in the supermarket? Why not try some new ones?
