At Danone North America, we are committed to bringing health through food to as many people as possible. We believe following a healthy eating pattern—that includes a variety of nutrient-dense plant- and animal-based foods—is an important first step toward achieving a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

The average American diet is more unbalanced than ever, the result of an eating pattern that is low in vegetables, fruits, and dairy and high in saturated fat, sodium, and added sugars.(1,2) The 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) recommend consuming a healthy eating pattern that includes vegetables and fruits, whole grains, nonfat or low fat dairy (including yogurt), seafood, lean meats, poultry, eggs, beans and peas, nuts and seeds, soy products, and oils. The DGA also recommend limiting saturated fats and trans fats, added sugars, and sodium.(2,3)

Incorporating a balanced combination of nonfat or low fat dairy and plant-based foods–for example, in a flexitarian diet approach that includes a variety of nutrient-dense foods–can help encourage a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle and may also offer benefits to the planet through a dietary pattern with a lower carbon footprint.(4,5)
