Healthy Eating

Healthy eating and physical activity should be part of everyone's lifestyle. Making wise food choices as per Canada’s Food Guide means choosing grain products that are lower in fat, sugar and salt. NO YOLKS are low in fat and sodium.

Pasta is a good source of complex carbohydrates, and a moderate source of protein, containing essential vitamins and minerals. Carbohydrates are necessary because they provide the main source of energy for muscles, nerves and other body tissues (consider them high octane fuel for your body!). Carbohydrates also produce the glucose that your brain needs to function. Pasta, like NO YOLKS, provides energy mainly from carbohydrates. Energy is an important factor aiding in maintaining the functions of the body necessary to the maintenance of good health and normal growth and development. Carbohydrates also aid in fat utilization. Enriched pasta, like NO YOLKS, are also a source of 5 essential vitamins and minerals. In addition NO YOLKS are a source of dietary fibre. That’s a lot of goodness packaged into a delicious versatile pasta product.

To be active every day is a step towards better health and a healthy body weight. Canada's Physical Activity Guide recommends building 30 to 60 minutes of moderate physical activity into daily life for adults and at least 90 minutes a day for children and youth. You don't have to do it all at once. Add it up in periods of at least 10 minutes at a time for adults and five minutes at a time for children and youth. Start slowly... and build up.

Daily exercise is also an important part of weight control. Well-balanced eating creates energy which fuels exercise.
