Programs that promote the benefits of healthy eating and encourage people of all ages to voluntarily adopt food choices and other food and nutrition-related behaviors that are conducive to health and well-being. People are encouraged to choose a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fat-free or low-fat milk products while limiting their consumption of saturated fats, sodium and sugars, controlling their intake of alcohol and balancing their overall food intake with physical activity. The objective of many of these programs is to prevent obesity in children and adolescents and the increased risk of associated health problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and Type 2 diabetes that often persist during adulthood.
