Be Healthy – get active and eat well

We might be spending more time at home but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be getting regular physical activity and eating well. The Federal Government is strongly supporting Australians to stay active and exercise daily, as long as the activity is consistent with social distancing guidelines. Being active and eating well is more important than ever to keep you in good health.

It can be tempting to spend more time on the couch. But the extra time many of us are now finding in our day is a great opportunity to spend more time preparing healthy meals and building exercising into our new daily routines.

These habits will not only help you to manage worry and clear your mind but are also an important part of managing your diabetes as it will help you to manage your blood glucose levels.

The importance of healthy food

Eating well is an important part of diabetes management.

Healthy eating for people living with diabetes is no different to what is recommended for everyone else. There is no need to prepare separate meals or buy special foods—the entire family can enjoy the same healthy meals.
