In this episode of Ask a Nutritionist, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Megan Holdaway answers the question, "What is healthy eating?"
Megan explains that with new food trends and emerging nutrition research, it can become confusing to understand what to eat for optimal health. At Dairy Council of California, we believe healthy eating patterns are nutritious and wholesome food choices made consistently over time. Megan delves deeper to address the importance of diet quality, nutritional factors to consider and how consuming a variety of nutrient dense foods can build a foundation for healthy eating habits.
