World Food Day 2019: Our actions are our future. Healthy diets for a #ZeroHunger world.

FAO celebrates World Food Day each year on 16 October to commemorate the founding of the Organization in 1945. Events are organized in over 130 countries across the world, making it one of the most celebrated days of the UN calendar. These events promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure food security and nutritious diets for all.

Tips For a Healthy Diet For a #ZeroHunger world.

Need to get back on track with your healthy eating? We have rounded up 10 of the best quick tips for a healthy diet that will instantly kick-start your daily diet to a more healthy state.

1. Drink Lots Of Water

Take a 1.5-liter — that’s over 2.5 pints — a bottle of water to work with you and try to finish it all by home time. It might involve a few extra toilet breaks in the day, but it’s worth it.

2. Eat The Recommended Portions Of Fruit And Vegetables Every Day

If you find this difficult, then remember that smoothies, juices and dried fruit all count. Although advice on how many portions of fruit and vegetables a day can vary from country to country, average recommendations tend to be between 5-10 portions a day.

3. Never Skip Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Opt for something that will release energy slowly — porridge and a handful of blueberries are a great option!

4. Plan Your Meals For The Week Ahead

Write a shopping list and stick to it — and never shop when you're hungry, as this is a fatal error that inevitably leads you to stuff your shopping trolley full of junk!

5. Keep A Supply Of Healthy Snacks To Hand

Snacks can include fresh and dried fruit, wholesome cereal bars, rice cakes, low-fat fruit yogurts, and wholemeal pitta and hummus.

6. Remove All Visible Fat From Food Before You Cook It

Take the skin off chicken and trim the white fat off any meat. Also, try to avoid eating too many processed types of meat such as sausages and burgers (the fat's not visible from the outside, but it's certainly there).

7. Limit Your Intake Of Stimulants

Caffeine, alcohol and refined sugar are a few to limit in your diet.

8. Limit The Number Of Times You Eat Out To Once A Week

Take your own packed lunch to work or choose (non-creamy) soup in the canteen.

9. Eat Properly

Don't cut out food groups — such as carbohydrates — altogether in a bid to lose weight quickly. Your body needs balance, so make sure you eat properly. And don't do denial — you'll only end up cracking!

10. Only Eat Things You Like The Taste Of

Find what works for you, and don't force yourself to eat things just because they're good for you.
