As an information junky, I cannot pass a booth or shelf that has free stuff. The other day, as we left the Saunders House, where my 100-year old mother-in-law resides, I picked up the first copy of their newsletter. The title was National Nutrition Month, March 2007, Volume I, Issue I, and there was a tiny logo that said:”Eat Smart: Stay Healthy” from the American Dietetic Association)
The lead article had these four topics gleaned from a website entitled www.eatright.org. (This is an abbreviated version, since this is a health “flash”.) âœ”Check these out and see if they don’t make good eating sense!
âœ” Develop an eating plan for lifelong health.
âœ” Choose foods sensibly by looking at the big picture. (A single food or meal won’t break or make a healthful diet.)
âœ” Find your balance between food and physical activity.
âœ” Misinformation about food and nutrition can have harmful effects on your health and well-being, as well as your wallet. (In other words, obtain information from qualified people.)
Happy, healthy National Nutrition Month. Let’s work on making nutrition a part of every day, not just the focus of March!
