Good nutrition means your body gets all the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals it needs to work its best. People with healthy eating patterns live longer and are at lower risk for serious health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. For people with chronic diseases, healthy eating can help manage these conditions and prevent complications.

For those working in law enforcement, there are sometimes challenges to eating healthy meals while on the job; long hours of shift work, sitting in a car for an extended period of time, and working overnight are all potential barriers to healthy eating. As such, those in the profession need to take a proactive approach to their diets and develop plans for eating that minimize the effects of these barriers on their daily nutrition.

Making healthy choices can feel intimidating and complicated at times; however, we hope these resources help you navigate your way to a healthy nutritional plan.
