Why is this important?

Food provides the body energy for its functions, including internal body function and your day-to-day activities. Energy is measured in units of kilojoules or calories. By knowing the energy value of foods, you can estimate how much you are taking.

Enjoy a wide variety of foods focused on fresh food. A diet with plenty of vegetables along with fruit, lean proteins and rich in wholegrains, fiber, vitamins, minerals and healthy fats is ideal. Avoid a diet low in unhealthy fats, salt and added sugar. 

How much you eat is another important part of eating well and healthy. The amount you should eat depends on factors, including the type of food served.
