Start Now and Create a Healthier Diet for Life

How much you eat is just as important as what you eat, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.  Start with small changes to your eating habits – one forkful at a time.  Eating a variety of healthful foods helps reduce to the risk of preventable, chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease.

Your healthy-eating plan should include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fat-free or low-fat dairy, and lean proteins.  Whether you’re cooking at home or dining out, put your best fork forward to help find your healthy eating style.
