This question is not as straightforward as it first appears.
A number of factors can make us healthy, it could be for some people, having clear skin or a glowing complexion.
For others it could be leading an active lifestyle while being full of energy and having a positive attitude, or for some people just to be free from disease.
Whatever the answer is most people will recognise that a good healthy balanced diet will
help to achieve all of the above.
More and more evidence suggests that diet plays a major role in keeping us healthy and free of disease.
This is way it is important that we are eating the correct balance of nutrients every day.
