It would be wonderful if the smaller neighborhood store owners were health conscious. The foods and snacks that are offered in their stores are questionable. They do not have any nutritional value. These foods only tantalize the tongue with false hopes of being good foods. Even if the majority of the foods continued to be carried as stock, it would be good if some healthy foods and snacks were put in the stores. It is important for people to eat healthy on a daily basis. Better food choices are important for the body’s overall makeup.
For many years, I was taught that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I have seen a parent come into a store with children and grab unhealthy snacks for them. The choices were a pop and chips. How can a child survive properly on such poor food choices at the beginning of the day? It is impossible for a child to receive good nutrition by eating those food items. Their bodies will not gain any good physical or mental benefits in an effort to stay healthy.
I am not saying that a person has to be a fanatic about eating healthy, however one must give their body the right fuel in order for it to function properly. Eating healthy foods will allow a person to feel better, avoid missing work or school, and function mentally on a daily basis. It is important to feel better so that you can perform certain tasks and necessary routines in life. Also, it is important to go to work, if you have a job or career. If you do not work, you may not eat. Healthy foods are important to your mental health. You need to think clearly in order to live productively and communicate effectively with people.
If you do not understand how to eat better, it would be wise to consult a nutritionist. A nutritionist can help you to learn about how to eat healthy. He or she can help you to learn about the benefits of healthy eating. Also, doing research on healthy eating will be helpful to you. If possible, you can go to the library or search online about healthy eating. There is a wealth of information available on this valuable subject.
Many neighborhood stores can help community residents with eating better foods. It would be profitable for the store owners to invest in stocking whole foods. It is just a matter of choosing to sell wholesome foods. While whole foods will cost more, they will help people over a matter of time. Eating a healthy diet everyday is important. If a person eats foods and snacks that a unhealthy, their body will not function properly. People who eat healthy foods function better in life. They think better and make better choices. When a person is able to think better, he or she will want what is best for themselves and their community. Better citizens help to build better communities. Thus, the neighborhood stores becomes more productive while encouraging the community residents to eat wholesome healthy foods.
