Healthy Tip: Eat Well & Be Well!

Eat Well & Be Well!

Be active – regular physical activity has many health benefits. Children and teens should get 60 minutes or more of physical activity per day and adults at least 2 hours and 30 minutes per week

Drink more water – stay hydrated and drink plenty of water, especially if you are active, are an older adult or live or work in hot conditions.

Reduce added sugars – foods and drinks with added sugars can contribute to empty calories and little or no nutrition – review ingredients on the food label to help identify sources of added sugar.

Experiment with plant-based meals – expand variety in your menus with budget friendly meatless meals. Eat a variety of plant foods. Eat vegetables, beans and lentils as meat substitutes. Try including one meatless meal per week to start.
