"Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;...
and not today's pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man."

Heart Foundation Tick Explained

Lisa Cutforth - Friday, June 05, 2009
Shopping for food can be an overwhelming experience, there are SO many different products out there.  Many of them are shamelessly marketing health claims at you these days... how do you see through that, how do you get the one up on these sneaky suppliers.  If you want to choose healthy foods, shop for foods that most closely resemble their healthy form and don't come in packages or boxes or plastic, stack your shopping cart high with those foods, and then add some of the other convenient foods that you like to have about. And you could use the Heart Tick as a guide: remember though, some foods that don't have the heart tick can still be healthy and some even healthier than tick approved food. But it is a useful easy starting guide, every little helps!
