In the US, Hispanics are disproportionately impacted by obesity and chronic health conditions, as compared to the general population.
Eating a healthy well-balanced diet filled with whole grains, fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, low-fat dairy and lean protein is important for health and wellness. Knowing what and how much to eat is the key to being healthy.
