Healthy eating

Food is essential to life and a major influence on health and general wellbeing. A balanced, nutritious and safe diet is vital for physical and mental wellbeing, and protects against many diseases throughout life.

A poor diet is behind many serious illnesses, and is responsible for an increasing proportion of ill health.
