Healthy Eating and Nutrition

Obesity has been linked to increased risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, arthritis-related disability, and some cancers. According to the most recent data, 64% of all Harford County adults and 25% of our children are still overweight and obese.

Healthy Harford does not emphasize weight loss through dieting, but rather by making positive lifestyle choices. By focusing on getting the maximum nutrition from your food, low calorie, high nutrition foods will replace high calorie, low nutritional foods, and weight loss will occur naturally.

Our goal is to help make eating healthy easier. Contrary to popular opinion, healthy eating isn’t necessarily more expensive, but it can be more time consuming at first while you’re still learning. The resources and tips here are designed to help.
