Health and Wellness should be a simple equation of eat a balanced meal and exercise. Our ancestors, with knowledge or by default, followed the idea of eating for health and wellness, they had little choice. Rigours of life in times gone by, demanded they walked everywhere and every activity was manual labour, by to-days standards.
Today we have choice, but the choice comes at a cost. Every act of daily living has been made easier by use of gadgets. We don’t have to walk, if we chose not to, we have options.
Health campaigns like ‘5 vegetables and 2 fruits “ must cost the taxpayer and it has delivered the message it intended. Is this enough? Is the community eating better? Are we eating for Health and Wellness? Maybe!
