March Is National Nutrition Month – Eat Healthy All Month Long

March is National Nutrition Month, and to put a sharper focus on healthy eating, nutrition and excercise, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has put together a toolkit to help seniors – or people of any age – make the most of what they eat.

Some quick tips to consider are:
Including healthy foods from all food groups in daily meals
Make sure to hydrate in a healthy manner
Learn how to read the Nutrition Fact Panels on the sides of packaged food
Practice good portion control – eat enough, but not too much

The Academy has put together a handy tool kit complete with activities, posters and literature that can help you educate and remind your friends about the importance of good nutrition every day. Just click on the following link to access the full array of materials, available at no cost.
