Food provides people with the necessary energy and nutrients to be healthy. By eating a variety of healthy foods, including good quality vegetables, fruits, whole-grain products and lean meats, the body can replenish itself with the essential proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals to function effectively. Having a healthy diet is one of the best things you can do to prevent and control various health problems i.e. types of cancers, heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.
