  • If you don't have the money to buy those costly balance diet food then go to get the most out of a vegetarian diet, choose a variety of healthy plant-based foods, such as whole fruits and vegetables, legumes and nuts, and whole grains. At the same time, cut back on less healthy choices, such as sugar-sweetened beverages, fruit juices and refined grains.

  • Eating balanced diet is very Paramount to our health daily. It's the best we can give our health. No matter the status of each homes or families, in our daily meals the six classes of food must be present there in. I think in that way we'll be able to manage our health and be careful about what we digest as meals or food.

  • Balance diet means eating food that contain all the classes of food in the right proportion.. To eat balance diet, one need the knowledge of all the classes of food and the components. Select the less expensive from each class and combine to form your meal. For example, okro is very cheap compare to other vegetables. Same thing can be apply in each class to form a balanced meal.
