working closely with the National Diabetes Institute (NADI) on

Eat Healthy, Stay Healthy
• Eating healthy doesn't mean you have to say “goodbye” to
foods like nasi lemak, mee goreng or roti canai. With the
right plan, you can still enjoy your favourite dishes as long
as you have more healthy meals than less healthy ones.
Just remember to exercise, get enough rest and practise
a healthy lifestyle as often as possible. Don’t wait till your
health deteriorates and diabetes sets in before you make
a change because prevention is always better than cure.
