Healthy Eating By: Michelle B. http://www.helpguide.org/life/healthy_eating_diet.htm Eat right, be bright! Healthy eating is not about strict nutrition, staying unrealistically thin, or forbidding yourself from eating the foods you love. It’s about feeling great, having more energy, having a great mood, and keeping yourself as healthy as possible. All of these things can be achieved by learning more about nutrition and learn to promote healthy eating in your home, school, and the community. tips: -Instead of being overly concerned with counting calories or measuring portion sizes, think of your diet in terms of color, variety, and freshness.
-Trying to make your diet healthy overnight isn't realistic or smart. Changing everything at once usually leads to giving up on your new eating plan. Make small steps, like adding a salad to your meal once a day.
- Eating with other people has a lot of social benefits and allows you to improve your eating habits. Eating in front of the TV or computer often leads to mindless overeating. refer to Canada's food guide: Promoting Healthy Eating At home:
Limit the number of treats that you are allowed to eat each day. Don't ban these foods completely.
come up with different recipes with fresh ingredients and enjoy the variety of meals you can cook.
always have some fruits within easy reach instead of sugary snacks
keep all unhealthy snacks away from the place where you eat. instead keep them as an "just-in-case" snack somewhere in a cupboard.
some families don't have time to cook so plan a week's worth of meals, so you won't have to go out to eat
eat together as a family, concentrate on your food, and don't watch TV while eating!
you could plant a vegetable garden Barriers that could affect your health and lifestyle: http://www.healthycanadians.gc.ca/eating-nutrition/healthy-eating-saine-alimentation/tips-conseils-eng.php One of the barriers is time.
A lot of parents work from day to night and don’t have time to buy or cook food. As a result, families end up getting fast food just to save time. In fact, 85% of families agree that healthy eating is crucial but 40% of these families don’t have the time to cook healthy. Because of this reason, many families develop health problems, and parents are risking the lives of their children Another barrier is money.
Money is essential to buy fresh food from the grocery store and cook it at home. Statistics show that 60% of families are happy of the healthy choices in stores, but only 30% are satisfied with the price. This limits the amount of healthy choices a family gets and different healthy recipes that could be made solutions Media has always been a common barrier. often, many popular singers and actors participate in ads or commercials. They advertise unhealthy food and drink products such as Pepsi, burgers, and others. The fact that people see their favorite singer or actor enjoy these products, it encourages them to try it. In addition, the people who advertise this, look young and healthy and people cannot realize the real consequences of unhealthy eating habits. here is an example of a commercial advertising Pepsi: bibliography The End Thank you for listening :) at school:
you can organize a cooking club after school with a help of a teacher, and convince your friends to join with you
give out healthy snacks at recess such as apples
help organizing a healthy hot lunch list. for example: whole wheat subs or adding a sald to one of the options
schools could replace sugary snacks in a vending machine to healthy snacks full of vitamins.
post posters about encouraging healthy eating in classrooms and hallways. in the community:
in supermarkets, there could be a bigger variety of fresh fruits and vegetables than artificial products.
some people can't afford to buy fresh, healthy food. but stores can provide coupons:

put up posters encouraging healthy eating
support or start a community garden, which provides people with freshly grown fruits and vegetables "Remember, you don't have to be wealthy, to be healthy!!!" facts: Over 300,000 deaths per year are caused by poor nutrition and a lack of physical activity.
One out of every three children born today will develop diabetes at some point in their lifetime if dietary trends continue as
they are today.
A can of soda contains 10 teaspoons of sugar.
In the US, the average adult drinks about 500 cans of soda a year!
Over the past 30 years, the number of overweight children has doubled and the number of overweight teenagers has tripled.
