What does good health really mean?
Health, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO) is "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity."
Achieving good health can be fostered by engaging in regular physical activity and getting adequate sleep and by avoiding or reducing detrimental behaviours or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Our health can be directly affected because of individual choices such as the type of food and how much we consume on a daily basis.
What is a balanced diet?
A balanced diet delivers all the nutrients your body requires to work effectively. Without balanced nutrition, your body is more prone to fatigue, infection, and disease. Children who don’t have an appropriate intake of healthy foods can face growth and developmental complications, low academic performance, and frequent infections. It’s also important to establish healthy eating habits from a young age so unhealthy habits don’t persist into adulthood.
The best way to eat to promote good health is to choose a variety of nutritious and healthy foods from the five core food groups every day as each food group has important nutrients.
- vegetables and legumes (beans)
- grains and cereals
- lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, legumes (beans) tofu, nuts, seeds
- dairy (milk, cheese, yoghurt) or alternatives
The amount of each food you need will vary throughout your life and is dependent on factors including your activity level, whether you are growing, pregnant or breastfeeding ageing and more. * See ‘Australian guide to healthy eating’
Pro40 can be used in conjunction with a balanced diet to help you reach your recommended dietary intake for certain nutrients.
When aiming to achieve good health discretionary choices should be limited as they often replace healthier foods in the diet and provide our bodies with excess energy, saturated fat, sugar, or salt meaning they are energy-rich, but nutrient poor.
These foods/drinks include highly processed foods, biscuits, cakes, lollies, chocolate, processed meats, fried foods, soft drinks, cordial, energy drinks and alcohol
In summary, a balanced diet is usually varied, containing plenty of fresh, wholefoods and limits the intake of energy and nutrient poor processed foods.
