What is a high-quality diet?
According to a report:
- lots of fruits and vegetables, wholegrains, fibre, nuts, and seeds
- modest amounts of animal source foods
- minimal amounts of processed meats
- minimal amounts of food and beverages high in energy and added sugar, saturated fat, trans fat and salt
High-quality diets reduce the risk of malnutrition by encouraging healthy growth, development, and the body’s protection against diseases throughout life.
