Healthy eating to prevent chronic disease


Healthy eating can reduce the risk for chronic
disease and contribute to overall wellbeing. When you consume foods and drinks that are
high in calories, fat, sugar and salt, you’re increasing your risk of heart disease — not
to mention Type 2 diabetes and colorectal cancer. Eating fruits and vegetables, whole grains
and plant-based proteins reduces your risk of heart disease… and makes your heart
happy. Healthy eating also means: •reading food labels to choose healthier
products •avoiding saturated fats found in snack
foods, fried foods and baked goods •eating the right type and amount of fats
to increase good cholesterol and decrease bad cholesterol. Visit Canada.ca for more tips. Let’s eat
healthy Canada! For your heart!
