Discover healthy living!Discovery Vitality brings you the HealthyFood benefit to help you make healthier food choices when shopping at Woolworths. The selection criteria for the list of HealthyFood in this catalogue were compiled by a team of nutrition and health experts, and currently include the latest dietary guidelines. These guidelines, which include the most recent scientific evidence, help to address high risk dietary practices that are associated with chronic lifestyle related diseases such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.
In addition to the quality of food, the quantity of food also plays a significant role in terms of your health. Portion sizes have increased significantly over the past twenty years - from food packaging to dinner plates in restaurants. Calorie reduction on its own can only go so far - living a healthy lifestyle depends on combining smart eating with burning off excess calories and getting the right amount of physical exercise, on a regular basis is just as important.
