Start off by trying whole grain foods instead of refrained (typically white) grain foods. Cut back on sugary drinks and solid fats (such as ice cream), and try a low sodium or no sodium alternative!
Emphasize Fruits & Veggies
Mix vegetables into your go-to dishes. Try spinach with pasta or peppers in tacos. Pack your child’s lunch bag with fruits and veggies. Great starts are sliced apples, bananas, or carrot sticks!
Try and differentialte occasional snacks such as cookies and everyday snacks such as carrots, orange slices, or nuts! Try and remember to pack these for easy consumption! Add water to every snack. Not only is it healthy, but it can help fill you up!
The Theme for National Nutrition Month 2020 is Eat Right, Bite by Bite.
National Nutrition Month, celebrated each year during March, focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.
“Eat Right, Bite by Bite” and the overall message is that quality nutrition isn’t restrictive, but that small changes to diet can have a cumulative effect on health over time. Every healthy nutritional choice is a choice in the right direction!
During National Nutrition Month®, help the Academy achieve its vision of a world where all people thrive through the transformative power of food and nutrition.
