Healthy Eating Facts (Diets and Nutrition)
Humans must consume food in order to develop and maintain a stable body, but we have diverse nutritional needs as babies, children (kids), adolescents, young adults, adults, and seniors. Infants, for example, will need to be fed every four hours before they reach the point where they can eat solid foods. As young children, they eventually adopt a more usual feeding schedule of three meals per day. Children, adolescents, and young adults, on the other hand, often snack during meals, as most parents are aware. Adults and seniors also snack, but snacking is not limited to these age ranges.
- Eat three nutritious meals a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner); keep in mind that dinner does not have to be the biggest meal of the day.
- Good foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk items can make up the majority of the diet.
- Incorporate lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts into your diet (with a focus on beans and nuts).
- Look for foods that are low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars; read the labelling to see which additives include the highest amounts.
- To avoid gastroesophageal reflux and weight gain, avoid consuming a big meal before going to bed.
- Eating will not help an individual feel better if they are upset or sad, because it may exacerbate the underlying issues.
- Rewarding children with sugary sweets is not a good idea; this can become a lifetime habit.
- In the summer, avoid heavy meals, particularly on hot days.
- Vegetarianism is recommended for a healthier lifestyle and weight loss; vegetarians should consult their doctors to ensure that they are having adequate vitamins, nutrients, and iron in their diet.
- Cooking foods (above 165 F) kills most unhealthy bacteria and pathogens; however, uncooked foods, such as fruits and vegetables, should be thoroughly washed with filtered (safe to drink) tap water right before consumption.
- All kind of raw or undercooked meat should be avoided.
