Healthy Eating and Improved Nutrition

Healthy eating and good nutrition start by making nutrient-rich, healthy food choices (foods with large amounts of vitamins and minerals in fewer calories) from all of the food groups. Choosing a variety of nutrient-rich foods as the foundation of what you eat can help you live a longer, healthier life. Healthy eating should be about positive choices, focusing on foods that provide the nutrients you need to maintain good health.
