Nutrition

Eating a healthy balanced diet provides us with the nutrients we need to maintain good health, strong bones and muscles.

Eating foods like vegetables, fruits, breads and cereals, legumes, lean meat, fish, poultry or meat alternatives and dairy each day, will ensure enough vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre.

Calcium is important to keep bones strong and help prevent fractures and osteoporosis.

Drink regularly, even before you feel thirsty. Dehydration, especially in hot weather can happen very quickly and can cause confusion, dizziness and increase the risk of falls.
