Five Minutes or Less for Health Weekly Tip: Eat Healthy

Eat healthy

Choose healthy meals and snacks at home, in restaurants, and on the go to improve your health. A healthy lifestyle involves choosing a balanced diet or healthy eating plan that also helps you manage your weight, and includes a variety of foods you may not have considered. If "healthy eating" makes you think about the foods you can't have, try refocusing on all the new foods you can eat.

  • Choose fruits, vegetables, and whole grains rather than foods high in sugar, salt, and fat.
  • Grab a healthy snack on the go and limit processed foods that are high in salt.
  • Read Nutrition Fact Labels to find the healthiest options for your favorite foods.
  • Choose water instead of sugary drinks.
