Health and Wellness
Good nutrition isn’t about counting calories or eating only “healthy” foods or never again eating your favorite food. Good nutrition is about making food choices that allow you to stay healthy and well, and have the energy you need to do the things you want to do. It’s about making informed choices based on your knowledge of food, nutrients, food safety, and food storage, and finding your balance between food and physical activity. Good nutrition can contribute enormously to your quality of life and to extended good health even into very old age.
The UF/IFAS Extension Family and Consumer Sciences food and wellness program is here to help you better understand a variety of topics related to nutrition, health and food safety and to provide you with tools you need to live a long and healthy life.
