Eating right helps you feel great and stay healthy so you can achieve better health, but sometimes it’s hard to know what advice to follow or how to get started.
The Nutrient Rich Foods Coalition Web site offers easily accessible and reliable information to help you eat the nutrient-rich way — that means choosing nutrient-rich foods first within each of the five basic foods groups and selecting less nutrient-rich options as calories allow.
The Nutrient Rich Foods approach to eating is a positive, total diet approach based on the five food groups and nutrient density concepts highlighted in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPlate. By using the Nutrient Rich Foods approach, people can choose nutrient-rich foods that best fit personal tastes and lifestyles, giving them a long-term, well-balanced and healthier way to eat.
Throughout the course of a meal, a day or a week, you can use the Nutrient Rich Foods approach to take small steps to achieve better health — first by coming closer to the food group serving recommendations in MyPlate, and second by choosing more nutrient-rich foods and beverages within those food groups.
This site gives you the tools, tips and tactics you need to adopt a healthier eating plan — without a lot of time, but with a lot of great taste.
