Healthy, balanced diets include a variety of foods to ensure your body receives the nutrients it needs. Your diet should include:
- Whole Grains
- Proteins such as beans, eggs, nuts, lean meats, poultry and fish
- Low-fat or fat-free dairy products
During your meal planning and preparation, be sure to follow recommended serving sizes for each food group. Visit MyPlate.gov for more information about each food group and recommended serving sizes.
