Preventing Diabetes with Good Nutrition
Healthy eating is essential for both children and adults in order to curb obesity and avoid type 2 diabetes and its many related complications.
A healthy diet is one that is high in nutrients with a moderate number of calories per serving. Many Americans’ diets exceed the recommended number of calories per day and lack the recommended number of nutrients.
We’re working to ensure that more school systems offer meals that meet nutritional standards. Our goal is for all children to have access to the foods that allow them to get the recommended daily requirements of nutrients. We are also working to ensure that information about calories and carbohydrates is more readily available so people can make more informed, healthier food choices.
