Happy National Nutrition Month®! No matter what your age or life stage, has resources to help you personalize your plate with healthy choices. Build a healthy diet that meets your unique needs and preferences with these three tips:

  1. Know how your nutrition needs change over time. Eat healthy at every life stage with’s Nutrition by Age. Find resources for eating during pregnancy, feeding an infant, cooking for young children or teens, taking steps for healthy aging, and more. You and persons you take care of can meet your nutritional needs at every stage of life while feeling your best.
  2. Incorporate cultural foods and customs. Traditional foods, flavors, and cuisines offer a variety of healthy choices. Learn how to prepare them in healthful ways with recipes and tips on our Culture and Food.
  3. Choose the right diet for your health. If you have a health condition like diabetes or kidney disease, certain diet changes might help with managing your conditions. Our Diet and Health Conditions page provides basic information to help you get started. Be sure to consult with your healthcare provider before making any changes.
