Heart Healthy

Heart health is an issue for many individuals and proper nutrition can play a key role in prevention and management of the disease.

A heart healthy diet is one that includes foods that are high in fibre and beneficial vitamins and minerals such as whole grains, vegetables and fruits. Avoid foods that are high in fat (especially saturated and trans fats), salt and sugar and limit alcohol. If overweight, work towards achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight by reducing portion sizes and being physically active.
