What it means to eat healthy:

Eating healthy doesn't mean giving up your favorite foods. It simplymeans eating a variety of foods, and cutting back on food and drinks with high fat and sugar, such as sugary fizzy drinks (soda), cakes and, chocolate. These foods should be eaten less often and in smaller amounts. If a teenager constantly eats unhealthy, this can causephysical, emotional, and mental problems. Eating a few fruits and veggies every single day can help balance your diet, and help keepyou in the habit up into your adulthood.

Making tough decisions like whether to eat cake orfruit is hard. Some ways to help prevent yourself from making the wrong decision will help to impactyour life. First, think about what can happen if youpick the cake. What you eat today WILL affect howyou live in the future. You don't eat because you feel like it or you're bored, you eat because it willhelp your body. The fruit is obviously the best choice,tell yourself "If I eat this fruit everyday this week, Iwill reward myself with a small piece of cake on the weekend". That way you get the cake, but you are rewarding yourself because you ate the fruit.
