Get your Plate in Shape – March is National Nutrition Month
March 1st, 2012 by Jaclyn
Every March, we recognize National Nutrition Month, a nutrition campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This year’s campaign focuses on creating a healthy plate by making informed food choices and developing physical activity habits:
Make half your plates fruits and veggies- Eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables during meals and snacks.
Switch to fat free or low fat milk- The calcium and vitamin content is the same as higher fat dairy products.
Be physically active- Move more. Find an activity you enjoy and log at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of exercise each week.
