    A balanced diet is a cornerstone of health. Women, like men, should enjoy a variety of foods, such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats, low-fat dairy, and lean protein. However, women also have special nutrient needs, and during each stage of a woman's life, these needs change.
