March is National Nutrition Month. It started in 1973 as a week-long event and became a month-long one in 1980 because people grew interest in nutrition. Nutrition Month is sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and focuses on helping people developing good eating habits, exercise and make correct food choices.
We are what we eat, so, celebrate this month by trying healthy food, sport and happiness.
The Theme for 2017 is “Put your best fork forward”, that means each bite counts. Start with small changes and make them bigger. Add a fruit or a vegetable to your daily meal and then try and stick with it for the year. Add every month a day without meat and then try and make it every week. Have a fruit for a snack once in a while. In time, you will start making this healthy choices more often.
