If you eat a wide range of foods then you also consume a wide range of nutrients this is on the proviso that you are not eating food dense in low nutrients.

This means that your body gets the right amount of nutrients minus all the fats and excess sugars. It is also important to pick a wide range of foods from amongst the food groups and within each particular group.

For instance instead of always picking and a banana or apple to meet your fruit requirements try using some oranges and blueberry.

In order to keep your diet at a balanced level do not restrict or limit your phone intake. It's important to eat a sufficient amount of food, so you feel full rather than stuffed
