A healthy diet matters

A healthy diet provides protein, fat, and carbohydrates (macronutrients) and 13 essential vitamins and 14 essential minerals (micronutrients) that the body cannot make and must obtain in small amounts from food or other sources.

Micronutrients don’t provide energy, but they do perform hundreds of diverse duties in the body. Vitamins, which are organic compounds, act as coenzymes and some exhibit properties of hormones. Minerals, which are inorganic participate in the production of hormones and enzymes, and provide structure to bone, teeth, DNA, and lipids, among other functions.1,2

Inadequate macronutrient and micronutrient consumption, as well as excess macronutrient intake, pose significant health problems worldwide, and exist to some extent in every country, including developed areas.3
