Eating right - food, nutrition, recipes

Good nutrition is essential for good health. Eating a variety of nutritious foods every day - mainly fresh vegetables, fruits and whole grains - can reduce the risk of diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, some cancers, tooth decay, osteoporosis, anaemia and obesity.
