Did you know how important it is to include a variety of nutrient-rich foods from all the food groups into your daily diet? Let’s face it, you may be eating plenty of food, but your body may not be getting the proper nutrients it needs to be healthy. Nutrient-rich foods have minerals, protein, whole grains and other nutrients but are lower in calories.

It is important to eat an overall healthy dietary pattern that includes:

• A Variety of Fruits and Vegetables

• Whole Grains

• Low-Fat Dairy Products

• Skinless Poultry and Fish

• Nuts and Legumes

• Non-Tropical Vegetable Oils

Remember, nutrient-rich foods may help control your weight, cholesterol and blood pressure too. In addition, make sure to limit saturated fat, trans fat, sodium, red meat, sweets and sugar-sweetened beverages. If you choose to eat red meat, compare labels and select the leanest cuts available.
