Discover healthy meal options and nutrition resources.

From birth to adulthood, good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. People who adopt healthy eating patterns live longer and are at lower risk for developing serious health problems.

Good nutrition remains important for older adults, adults with disabilities and caregivers. Older adults are at a greater risk of chronic diseases and health conditions related to changes in bone and muscle mass. This population is also at higher risk for malnutrition and dehydration. The good news is that these risks can be reduced by eating nutrient-rich foods and maintaining an active lifestyle.
