healthy eating plate

Making healthy choices with regard to nutrition can be overwhelming. Using Harvard’s Healthy Eating Plate as a guide, we recommend eating mostly vegetables, fruit, whole grains, unsaturated fats, and healthy proteins. The Healthy Eating Plate guide also has other recommendations, including drinking water instead of sugary beverages, and addresses common dietary concerns such as salt and sodium, vitamins, and alcohol.
