Eat Healthy

Apple

The 2010 American Dietary Guidelines provide recommendations to help us achieve and maintain a healthy weight, reduce the risk of chronic disease, and promote overall health.

The guidelines emphasize three major goals for Americans:

  • Consume more of certain foods and nutrients such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fat-free and low-fat dairy products, and seafood.
  • Consume fewer foods with sodium (salt), saturated and trans fats, cholesterol, added sugars, and refined (white) grains.
  • Balance calories with physical activity to manage weight.

Learn more about healthy eating by checking out the resources below.
