Understanding nutrient density may help Americans make better food choices
 
Americans, in general, tend to have an unbalanced diet, consuming high levels of foods with low nutritional value and not eating enough of the foods that offer important nutrients. The diet of most Americans is low in vegetables, fruit, dairy and oils; exceeds recommendations for added sugar, saturated fat and sodium; and is too high in calories.1 Under-consumed nutrients include potassium, dietary fiber, choline, magnesium, calcium, and vitamins A, D, E, and C.1 Of these, calcium, potassium, dietary fiber, and vitamin D are considered nutrients of public health concern because low intakes are associated with health concerns.1 Iron is an additional nutrient of concern for young children, for women capable of becoming pregnant, and for women who are pregnant.1
