Good nutrition is essential to living a healthy life and it helps us avoid diseases such as hypertension and diabetes. Eating habits, whether good or bad, are learned. Unlearning bad habits late in life is very difficult. It’s very important to remember that if one member of the family is diagnosed with a lifestyle disease, the whole family needs to change their habits. This way, it becomes more sustainable and the children learn good habits.

It’s always easier to add something good, than to eliminate something bad. If you’re trying to be healthier, add something good to your lifestyle, more vegetables, a walk, changing from white to brown or whole wheat bread, or drinking more water. Introduce something positive every week, before you know it, there won’t be room for the bad stuff, and don’t do it alone, involve the whole family, to make it sustainable and fun.
