March is National Nutrition Month

Happy National Nutrition Month! This year, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics wants us to Go Further with Food! What does that mean? Simply put, make healthy food choices for every occasion. Start your morning off with a wholesome breakfast and make smart food choices throughout the day. Don’t forget about special events like a night out with friends or a family celebration – plan to have healthy options available for you to eat even during those times.

Going further with food could also include, going local! Take the extra step to find the origin of your food and support the local farmers in your community. Spring is near and farmers markets are ready to sell fresh, local foods. Gear up for the spring bounty and find a farmers market near you!
