Also participating were references from the academic field and public bodies such as the National Food Institute (INA / ANMAT) and the Ministries of Social Development and Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries. The ten tips: 1- Incorporate daily foods of all groups and perform at least 30 minutes of physical activity.The recommendation includes the realization of four daily meals (breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner) which should include vegetables, fruits, legumes, cereals, milk, yoghurt or cheese, eggs, meat and oils). The portions should be moderate, you should eat quietly and if possible accompanied. Prefer foods prepared at home instead of processed. Physical activity can be moderate continuous or fractional every day to avoid a sedentary lifestyle. 2- Take eight glasses of water daily. Drink at least two litres of liquids a day, without sugar, preferably water. Do not wait to be thirsty to hydrate. And use safe water to cook and wash food. 3- Consume five servings of fruits and vegetables every day in a variety of types and colours.A good rule to incorporate: half a plate of vegetables at lunch, half at dinner and two or three fruits throughout the day. Choose seasonal vegetables (they are more accessible and of better quality). The usual consumption of fruits and vegetables decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, colon cancer and cardiovascular diseases. 4- Reduce the use of salt and the consumption of foods with high sodium content.Cook without salt and limit the addition of the plate. Tip: avoid the salt shaker on the table. It can be replaced by various condiments (pepper, parsley, chilli, paprika, oregano, etc.). Cold meats, sausages and processed foods (broths, soups and preserves) contain a high amount of sodium. Read the labels before buying. Decreasing salt intake helps prevent hypertension, vascular and kidney diseases, among others. 5- Limit the consumption of sugary drinks and foods with a high fat, sugar and salt content.Limit the consumption of sweets, pastry and competing products, sugary drinks (and added sugar to infusions), butter, margarine, animal fat and cream.
