  • Break down complex nutrition information.
  • Clarify confusing healthy eating messages.
  • Provide credible healthy eating information.

  • Daily application of healthy eating recommendations, particularly in creating nutritious meals and snacks.

The CFG also offers a Food Guide Snapshot that provides an at-a-glance presentation of food choices and eating habits in 28 languages.
