Eat Well

Maintaining a healthy weight through a balanced diet can help to maintain good health, manage conditions and prevent illness and disease.

A balanced diet includes a wide variety of fruit and vegetables every day to provide fibre, vitamins and minerals. It should also include protein sources for muscle growth and repair and carbohydrates to provide energy and nutrients.

Calcium and Vitamin D are essential for healthy bones and teeth, people are at risk of low vitamin D levels when they spend a large amount of time indoors.
