With families spending more time together in the kitchen, it’s important to practice healthy routines. Use foundational foods to cook with more often and share meals together – that’s a great start to eating well!
Eating a variety of foods from each section of the food guide Eat Well Plate wins the day in the end – wholesome, nourishing foods that offer unique nutrient ‘packages’ for health. And there are food synergy benefits from eating these foods in combinations.
Healthy eating is more than just the foods on the plate, it is the healthy eating patterns that make a difference long-term. The food guide offers guidance on how to eat, not just what to eat.
