Healthy eating plays an important role in positive health and wellbeing and reduces your risk of disease.
Eating healthy foods regularly can reduce your risk of developing lifestyle diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers, as well as improve your blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Healthy eating can also help you maintain a healthy weight, improve your energy levels and sleeping patterns and improve your ability to fight off infection.
Workplaces play an important role in promoting health eating. Get Healthy at Work’s online Action Planner contains lots of ideas on how you can support healthy eating in the workplace. You can also visit Eat for Health to find out about the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating.
