Do you know that the human body needs more than 40 different nutrients for good health?
Nutrients are chemical substances present in foods that keep the body healthy, supply materials for growth and repair of tissues, and provide energy for work and physical activities.
No single food can provide all the nutrients the body needs. Eating a variety of foods from all the different food groups will supply the needed nutrients in the proper amount and balance.
So if you think of consuming only the foods you like, it’s about time that you re-think. Variety is the key to healthy eating!
