Nutrition and Medical Management

Good nutrition and food choices are important for adults to prevent or better manage a chronic condition and avoid complications. Healthy choices also help children develop properly and reduce their risk of getting chronic diseases as an adult. People who eat a healthy diet live longer and lower their risk of obesity, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers.

Healthy food choices can still be delicious! You can also enjoy holidays and cultural celebrations that have traditional meals. Listed below are some resources for a variety of cultural foods that allow you to enjoy the taste while still making healthy decisions:
