Nutrient-Rich Foods

Both adults and children are overweight and undernourished — missing out on important nutrients because they are not choosing nutrient-rich foods first. To improve public health, we need to do more than simply count calories; we need to make each calorie count more.

The Nutrient-Rich Foods approach is a positive, total diet approach that considers the complete nutrient package of foods and beverages. It encourages choosing nutrient-rich foods first as a way to help people build healthier diets. The nutrient-rich foods approach shifts the focus from foods to avoid to foods to enjoy — low-fat and fat-free milk, cheese and yogurt.
