Most fruits are naturally low in fat, sodium, and calories. Fruits are sources of many essential nutriments that are under consumed, including potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin C, and folate (folic acid). These help to boost your body’s natural defences.

Beans & Legumes

Legumes are loaded with health benefits. They’re very low in fat, have zero cholesterol, and have the same amount of calcium as a glass of milk.

Milk & eggs

Eggs are a great source of protein, amino acids and healthy fats and milk consists of protein and calcium. Eating cooked eggs with milk is a great way to balance out the protein intake.


Whole grains as part of a healthy diet reduce the risk of some chronic diseases. Grains are important sources of many nutrients, including fiber, B vitamins and minerals.


Bread (espacially whole wheat bread) is fortified with calcium and four medium slices per day would provide over 30% of the recommended daily intake of calcium which we need every day to maintain healthy bones and teeth


Vegetables contain healthful vitamins, minerals, and fiber. That improve overall health and wellbeing.
