Good nutrition is vital to healthy growth, development, and wellness throughout the lifespan. Healthy eating reduces the risk of chronic diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers. Healthy eating means consuming nutrient-dense foods and beverages across all food groups, including traditional foods.

Use this page to find information from IHS and other federal partners to help you make healthy eating choices.

See a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) to get counseling on nutrition and eating habits. Many IHS, Tribal, or Urban Indian Organizations offer nutrition services for individuals and groups.
