From the time of your birth, the need for adequate nutrition was born. We all need dietary guidelines to thrive and grow. Adequate food and nutrition helps keep us healthy with a balance of nutrients to prevent chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes. Today the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the USDA released the long awaited, new 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines to encourage healthy eating patterns for disease prevention.
If you or someone you know needs science-based dietary advice, make an appointment to speak with a registered dietitian nutritionist like myself. We base our expert advice on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Dietitians can be found throughout your community: at your local hospital, some doctor's offices, super markets, schools, community centers, work, retirement homes or in private practice.
