Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. -Hippocrates
Healthy food is important for the prevention and treatment of chronic health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity. The UW Health family medicine team believes food is medicine and created this website as a resource to guide you to better health with an emphasis on increasing produce consumption. In the spirit of The Wisconsin Idea, we are working with partners throughout Wisconsin to create nutrition security for all – a vision that everyone in Wisconsin EATS Healthy. Nutrition security exists when a person has physical, social, and economic access to enough, safe, and healthy food that meets their needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life at all times.
