Photographed inside Muntilan Hospital, in the Magelang District of Indonesia, in April, 2012, this image depicts a staff nutritionist, as she was instructing a patient on the importance of fiber consumption in reducing the risk of stroke. Note the prepackaged meals, one of which was placed on the patient’s bed, rich in vegetables, and tubers. The image was submitted by Indonesian Field Epidemiology Training Program (IFETP) resident, Lalu Hendi Hutomo.
Additional Information:
“You can help prevent stroke by making healthy lifestyle choices. A healthy lifestyle includes the following:
- Eating a healthy diet
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Getting enough exercise
- Not smoking
- Limiting alcohol use

Choosing healthy meal and snack options can help you avoid stroke and its complications. Be sure to eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Eating foods low in saturated fats, trans fat, and cholesterol and high in fiber can help prevent high cholesterol. Limiting salt (sodium) in your diet also can lower your blood pressure.”
