Good nutrition for people of all ages for health maintenance as well as restoration of health is an economic, political and humanitarian concern. Unfortunately, millions of people in North America experience some degree of malnutrition as a result of ignorance or poverty or both. This paper discusses inadequacies in the American diet, the causes of those inadequacies, influences on American diets, and ways the diet may be improved. The paper also provides the results of a dietary survey and a survey of economic groups.
