March is National Nutrition Month

Spring is around the corner so there’s no better time than now to focus on food and some nutrition goals.  National Nutrition Month is a campaign sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) and its focus is on raising awareness about good nutrition habits and small changes that can lead to healthier lifestyles.  The theme this year for National Nutrition Month is “Go Further with Food” and it is a reminder that food is our fuel and that proper food choices make a big difference in our overall well-being.

So take this month as an opportunity to make one change in your eating habits for the better.  Some common ideas include:

  • Eating breakfast each day
  • Drinking more water during the day
  • Taking your own lunch to work
  • Refrain from using the salt shaker on the table
  • Cooking at home more often
  • What change will you decide to make?
