Make Sure You're Eating
Foods from All Food Groups Every Day
Each food group has different nutrients that are important for a healthy diet, so it's important to eat foods from multiple groups each day
It's not difficult to put together a meal that has food from 2 or 3 groups
Healthy eating habits are linked to reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and more
Here are some examples of healthy foods in each group
Vegetables - eat veggies of all colors - dark green, red and orange, and other like carrots, bell peppers, lettuce, cucumbers, and beets
Fruits - apples, oranges, berries
Grains - whole grain pasta, cereals, bread
Dairy - fat-free or low-fat milk, yogurt, cheese
Proteins - fish, chicken, eggs, beans and peas, nuts, and seeds
Follow MyPlate guidelines and check out myplate.gov to find more ideas and guidance on eating foods from each group
