Importance of Good Nutrition
Your food choices each day can affect your health and how you feel today, tomorrow and in the future. Good nutrition is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Combining physical activity with a healthy diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases, and promote your overall health.
Unhealthy eating habits have contributed to obesity in the United States for years, and about one-third of US adults are obese and approximately 17% of children and adolescents ages 2-19 are obese.
The link between good nutrition and healthy weight can help reduce health factors including reduced chronic disease risk, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes. Dietary factors established in childhood often carry into adulthood, so it is very important to teach kids young about good nutrition.
Healthy nutrition and a good diet have so many positive effects on our lives. Physical activity mixed with a healthy diet is key to staying at a healthy weight and being healthy in general.
