He also added that good nutrition is the key to good mental and physical health. Eating a balanced diet is an important part of good health for everyone. The kind and amount of food you eat affects the way you feel and how your body works.
“Another important aspect of good nutrition for good health is to consume raw food. Fruits and vegetables are fantastic for one’s health, and while eating them cooked isn’t the worst thing in the world, eating them raw is much better. Since they are uncooked, their nutrients are intact. The body can get the out most benefit from all the goodness they have to offer. It is important to vary what kinds of fruits and vegetables one consumes”, he added.

He also thanked the GHS for the initiative.
