Healthy Eating Habits


Practising good eating habits

1. For good health, we need a balanced diet that gives us different nutrients in the amount our body needs.


2. We must eat a variety of food because different foods have different combinations of nutrients.


3. Unhealthy eating habits cause diet-related diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer.


4. Eat in moderation. If we eat too much, we become obese. However, if we eat too little, we may suffer from anorexia.


5. Avoid junk foods such as potato chips and pickles because they lack nutrients.


6. Excessive salt and cholesterol in the diet can contribute to heart diseases.
