Healthy Eating

Healthy eating is essential to your health and wellbeing. 

Between Uni lectures, jobs, family and our social lives we often don’t find the time to prepare healthy meals to nourish ourselves. Instead, we turn to sugar laden processed food and ultimately our health suffers. However, food is your body’s fuel and gives your body what it needs to function so it is important to make healthy choices. 

How to check whether you’re eating healthily:      

  • How is your diet? Do you eat healthily? If you are unsure, or just want to check how your diet compares, then why not take this quick Healthy Eating Test?
  • What does a balanced diet look like? Here is a simple guide to a healthy plate of food.
