Support for Nutrition and Healthy Foods

Expert Nutrition Information at Your Fingertips

Nutrition.gov provides easy access to vetted food and nutrition information from across the federal government. It serves as a gateway to reliable information on nutrition, healthy eating, physical activity, and food safety for consumers.

Providing science-based dietary guidance is critical to enhance the public's ability to make healthy choices in the effort to reduce obesity and other food related diseases. Since dietary needs change throughout the lifespan, specialized nutrition information is provided about infants, children, teens, adult women and men, and seniors.

Users can find practical information on healthy eating, dietary supplements, fitness and how to keep food safe. The site is kept fresh with the latest news and features links to interesting sites.

Nutrition.gov is funded by Research, Education and Economics (REE) mission area of the U.S. Department of Agriculture through the National Agricultural Library.

Technology Brings the Information You Seek

Nutrition.gov uses technology to enhance site navigation and search capabilities. We continually strive to improve both the content and usability of the site. The Nutrition.gov Web site contains more than 1000 links to current and reliable nutrition information. Our homepage can be accessed by going to: https://www.nutrition.gov

Nutrition.gov arose from USDA's commitment to promote a healthy America as outlined in Healthier US: The President's Health and Fitness Initiative. Nutrition.gov is supported through a USDA Interagency Agreement with REE.

Food and Nutrition Experts Working for You

Nutrition.gov was revitalized by the staff at the Food and Nutrition Information Center (FNIC) and the NAL in cooperation with a panel of food and nutrition expert advisors from agencies within USDA and Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). FNIC is an award-winning leader in online global nutrition information and was selected on this basis to revamp Nutrition.gov. The Nutrition.gov site was launched in November, 2004 and a major renovation was completed in February 2008.

FNIC's staff of trained nutrition professionals, most of whom are Registered Dietitians (R.D.), provide information on food and human nutrition.
