National Nutrition Month

National Nutrition Month

This year’s National Nutrition Month theme is “Put Your Best Fork Forward,” which is a reminder that each bite counts! There are five key nutrition points everyone should remember:

  1. Create an eating style that includes a variety of your favorite healthful foods.
  2. Practice cooking more at home and experiment with healthier ingredients.
  3. How much you eat is just as important as what you eat! Eat and drink the right amount for you, as MyPlate encourages you to do.
  4. Find activities that you enjoy and be physically active most days of the week.
  5. Manage your weight or lower your health risks by consulting a registered dietitian nutritionist. The RDN can provide sound, easy-to-follow, personalized nutrition advice to meet your lifestyle, preferences and health-related needs.

This reminder is brought to you by the Center for Healthy Communities.
