Good nutrition is one of the keys to good health. You can improve your nutrition – and your health – by regularly eating foods that have a lot of vitamins and minerals, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and low- or non-fat dairy.

Here are some tips for making healthy food choices:

Instead of This:         Try This:
Sugar cereals and regular granola Oatmeal, low-fat granola and whole-grain cereal
White rice Brown rice
Potato or corn chips and buttered popcorn Pretzels (unsalted) and unbuttered popcorn
Fried vegetables or veggies served with cream, cheese or butter sauces All vegetables raw, steamed, broiled, baked or tossed with a very small amount of olive oil and salt and pepper
Pork spare ribs and bacon Lean pork (tenderloin and loin chop) and turkey bacon
Regular ground beef Lean or extra-lean ground beef, ground turkey or chicken
Breaded fish sticks, fish canned in oil Fish (fresh, frozen or canned in water)
Whole or 2% milk Non-fat or 1% milk
Regular ice cream Sorbet, sherbet and nonfat or low-fat ice cream
Cookies Fig bars, gingersnaps and molasses cookies
Regular mayonnaise or salad dressing Nonfat or light mayonnaise or salad dressing
Using fat (including butter) to grease pan Nonstick cooking spray
