Can a healthy diet include sweet foods and beverages?

A healthy diet provides all of the essential nutrients that your body needs to promote health, support a fit and active life, and reduce your risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes or cancer. A healthy diet includes a variety of foods: cereals and grains; fruits and vegetables; protein foods such as meats, fish, poultry, eggs, nuts and legumes; milk and other dairy products like cheese or yoghurt; and small amounts of fats, oils and sweets. A diet that includes moderate amounts of sweet foods adds positive value to the eating experience by improving taste and palatability.
