Your Everyday Guide to Good Nutrition
Making healthier choices in your diet comes down to three
main points: Eat less fat, eat less salt and eat more fiber.
Good nutrition includes not only what you eat, but also
how much you eat and how you prepare it.
Children and Teens
The earlier you teach your kids about good nutrition, the
more likely they are to maintain a healthy weight.
As we age, our nutrition needs change. We may need more fluids
and possibly dietary supplements.
Eating well while you're pregnant is not that much different
than at other times: You still need to follow a healthy diet.
Know Your Risks
The questions in this assessment ask about risk factors—conditions that may put you at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) states that the more risk factors you have, the more likely you are to develop diabetes.
