Healthy Eating

Eat smart - what you eat and how much you eat are important. Food is the fuel for your body. Without the right food, your body just can’t work well. And too much or too little food are both bad. Too little food and you run out of energy. Too much food and you are carrying around an extra load - it slows you down.

Don't forget to drink water, especially when it's hot! Every part of your body needs water. It is in each of the cells in our bodies. Exercise keeps you fit, but in very hot weather, try to do it in the cooler hours. Keep water handy and drink plenty of it.
