Good nutrition is important for your general health and wellbeing. To function properly your body needs a daily intake of a full range of essential nutrients including plenty of fruit and vegetables, whole grains, dairy products, lean meats, fish and healthy oils.
The foods we eat are divided into two main categories of nutrients: macronutrients and micronutrients. Macronutrients are needed in large amounts, they form the foundation of our everyday dietary needs. They include proteins, carbohydrates and fats which provide us with energy.
Vitamins and minerals are found in small amounts in food, these are the micronutrients which play a critical role in maintaining the body’s processes and functions.
Most foods contain both macro and micro nutrients in varying proportions. The key to achieving a healthy well balanced diet is to eat a wide variety of different foods.
Everything that you eat and drink affects how your body functions. If your diet lacks nutrients you will not function at an optimum level.
