March into healthy eating

See also

March is National Nutrition Month. This campaign is spearheaded by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics which aims to bring awareness to making informed and educated food choices. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics reports that 82% of people do not want to give up the foods they like and 68% of people eat fewer than 2 servings of fruits and vegetables per day.

This year’s theme is ‘Enjoying the taste of Eating Right.’ Improving your diet does not have to include a total overhaul of your current diet. Small changes make can make a big impact; try these tips to improve the quality of your diet today:

  • Be adventurous: Try a new fruit/vegetable or try a new preparation method (i.e. roasting brussel sprouts)
  • Eat more: Focus on fiber rich foods (whole grains, fruits & veggies), these foods have larger serving sizes compared to high calorie foods
  • Live a little: Enjoy your favorite foods in moderation, try individually portioned items, order kid sized meals or share a meal when dining out
