    Sandy Beverage United States of America A well balanced diet begins at birth. People with knowledge, proximity to food source and income can or have the ability to make better food choices. Families with certain religious beliefs effect some of the families food choices . Young children tend to be effected more by their peers and older people by proximity and cost of food. Exercise is a must along with no or low processed foods and food contains lower sugar. High fiber is beneficial for good digestion . Excess sugar,carbohydrates and fats are converted to excess fats which could lead to heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. 2016-07-23 13:07:55
