Eating for a healthier you
NHS Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group is encouraging Wiltshire residents to eat healthier as part of Public Health England’s ONE YOU campaign.
What you eat, and how much, is very important for your health, and most of us are still not eating enough fruit and vegetables which should make up over a third of the food we eat each day.
The recommendation is that you should be aiming to eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables each day and cut back on eating foods that are high in fat and sugar.
Making better choices on what you eat can have a huge influence on your health and help prevent diseases such as type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, heart disease and can reduce your risk of suffering a stroke or living with dementia, disability and frailty in later life.
Find out more about the small changes you can make to help you eat more healthily and take the ‘how are you’ quiz on the NHS One You website: www.nhs.uk/oneyou.
