You’ve heard it before: You are what you eat. What you choose to eat has a big impact on your health, the proper growth of your baby and then, as they grow into childhood. For older children and adults, good nutrition can prevent chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes. Even your ability to recover from an injury or surgery is affected by your diet.
