Fuel For Your Body – Eating Healthy

Healthy eating is much more than a diet for weight loss. Food is our fuel.  Just like a car needs the right fuel for best performance, we need to fuel our bodies with the right foods. Eating healthy every day will help you to:

  • Prevent illness and disease; from  heart disease through to the common cold
  • Increase concentration at work, school and home
  • Support healthy bones and muscles throughout life
  • Achieve and maintain a healthy weight
  • Nourish your skin, hair and nails
  • Improve mood and boost energy 

The Australian Guide to Healthy Eating provides general advice and will help you to choose a wide variety of nutritious foods every day.

Healthy Beginnings provides specific healthy eating advice for mothers and parents through a range of booklets across several stages.
