Good nutrition is a vital part of staying healthy. Poor food choices and eating habits can lead to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and other chronic health conditions. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics established March as National Nutrition Month® to focus attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. To help promote good nutrition, WPS Health Insurance, Wisconsin's leading not-for-profit health insurer and provider of affordable group and individual health insurance, has introduced a healthy eating resource page on the WPS Health Center.
"No matter what size you are or what you weigh, when you eat healthy foods, your body will reward you with better health," said Dr. Marvin Wiener, Senior Medical Director at WPS Health Insurance. "Weight loss is not the only thing you can gain by eating right. Eating healthy lowers your risk for health problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stroke, and cancer," said Dr. Wiener.
The healthy eating resource page serves up a variety of information about chronic disease prevention, balanced nutrition, informed eating choices, and more including helpful interactive tools. Each topic is written to motivate and engage people to make better health decisions about what they eat.
WPS encourages individuals and families looking for more health tips and strategies to check out the WPS Health Center and the WPS Learning Center for free articles on preventing illness, making wise health decisions, health insurance guidance, and other timely topics. For questions or to request a quote for a high-quality individual or family health plan from WPS, please call 888-245-4197 to talk with a friendly representative.
