March is National Nutrition Month


The connection between nutrition and mental health cannot be disputed, and good nutrition is an important part of maintaining good mental health. During the month of March, learn more about making informed food choices and developing healthful eating and physical activity habits.

 

Here are some helpful tips to kick off the month:

  • Serve a variety of foods: Include choices from each food group—fruits, vegetables, grains, protein foods, and dairy or fortified soy alternatives—in meals and snacks throughout the week.

  • Plan ahead: Reduce stress at mealtimes by planning out meals before the week starts. Get ideas from family and friends and experiment with new tastes and recipes.

  • Grow your own: Grow herbs like basil and oregano inside your home for a fraction of the price. Small gardens can be grown on a windowsill or a kitchen counter.

  • Connect at mealtimes: Eat meals with family or friends whenever you can. Turn off the TV or devices so you can interact with others.

  • Start moving: Regular physical activity is just as important to a healthy lifestyle as nutrition. Fuel your body with healthy foods to support your exercise routine, reduce future health risks and maintain good mental health.

 

Improve your physical and mental health by making smarter food choices for you and your family today!
