Did you know… March is National Nutrition Month! A whole month dedicated to putting nutrition in the forefront to help us all improve our health and well-being. This year, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has chosen to focus the campaign on helping individuals improve their health from morning to night and beyond by improving eating and physical activity habits. As we “Go Further with Food” by making informed decisions we can make a great impact on our own health, the community, and the environment. Consider some of these tips for staying healthy in March and for years to come:
No matter the starting point, eating right does not have to be complicated. Start with small changes like drinking an extra cup of water every day, opting for a smaller piece of dessert at a gathering, or snack on a piece of fruit or cut up vegetables. A registered dietitian can help to develop an individualized plan when ready. Visit your local RAHS health center to set up an appointment or learn more!
