Making healthy FOOD DECISIONS refers to your ability to apply your food knowledge, information and skills to make healthy food choices.
Healthy eating is a habit. Making healthy food choices or decisions can help you develop a healthy eating pattern. A healthy eating pattern helps you improve your overall health.
Because ‘healthy eating is more than the foods you eat’, we can make food decisions based on a lot more than what’s healthiest, including what foods are available (at the store, restaurant, recreation center, school, etc.) and what our current life situation may be.
