Good nutrition can help people maintain a healthy weight and prevent health problems like obesity, heart disease and diabetes. According to the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010, a healthy eating plan:

Knowing what to eat is important, but people also need to hve access to affordable healthy food options. The Minneapolis Health Department works to ensure residents have access to affordable healthy food in their neighborhood in places such as schools, food shelves, and restaurants. The health department and community partners also work to address food access challenges such as a lack of grocery stores and limited transportation through Healthy Corner Stores and Community Gardens.
