Eating Well and Nutrition

Eating well is important to maintain good health and wellbeing. A well-balanced diet provides energy to keep active, nutrients for growth and repair, and helps to prevent diet related illnesses such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and some cancers. Getting the right balance ensures we get the correct nutrients to keep our immune system strong and maintain a healthy weight.
