Healthy eating is the practice of eating foods which are beneficial to the body and generally cause as little harm as possible to it. Many herbs, seeds, and fruits and vital to health eating, since they provide carbohydrates (mostly complex carbohydrates), but also vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, amino acids, and a host of other nutrients, sometimes even including complete proteins.
Conversely, sweet donuts are unhealthy because the sugar in them causes obesity as does the fat particularly in fried donuts. Savory donuts are not significantly harmful in moderation but they can contain too much fat and simple carbohydrate. Other products like sweets and toffees are more harmful. Many manufacturers produce tasty and unhealthy foods. They employ high pressure advertising to encourage adults and children to eat unhealthily.
The body of a Christian is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Also, self-control is one of the fruits of the holy spirit. Therefore, many Christians believe that they should strive to eat healthily.
