UEFA encourages healthy eating habits

UEFA has partnered with the World Heart Federation and Healthy Stadia to promote a healthier lifestyle, as cardiovascular disease is the first cause of deaths in Europe. Being active and eating healthily are two ways to keep the risk at bay. That’s why this year, for World Heart Day, we have asked some of the best European footballers how important their diet is for optimum performance on the pitch. Everyone, everywhere has the right to make heart healthy choices. But we all need to take action to make it happen. It’s not a hard choice, it’s a heart choice.
