March into Nutrition Month!

By The DAHLC

Good nutrition doesn't have to be restrictive or overwhelming. Small goals and changes can have a cumulative healthful effect, and every little bit (or bite!) of nutrition is a step in the right direction. 

March is National Nutrition Month®. Let’s consider a few bite by bite tips to feel like we are eating right to feel fueled, stronger, and add a spring to our step:

  • Cover the basics.  Eat foods from each food group to ensure you get important nutrients.
  • Hydrate healthfully.  Water is best.  Coffee, tea, and low calorie beverages can also be part of a healthy diet and active lifestyle.
  • Be savvy when choosing your foods at the grocery store and at restaurants.  Look at labels, ingredient lists, and nutrition info.
  • Plan for eating away from home.  Whether going to work, out for the day, or traveling, take nutritious portable foods to keep you on track mentally and physically.

Looking for more?  Our DAHLC Nutrition poster (look for it around the facility) will be featuring tips for choosing foods, meal planning, and trying new recipes – new themes each season.  Join us in the kitchen or in office to get your food and nutrition questions answered.
