NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH - MARCH


During National Nutrition Month®, focus on sustainable and healthy eating habits.


Dietary Guidelines for Americans

  1. Follow a healthy dietary pattern at every life stage.

  2. Enjoy nutrient-dense food and beverages.

  3. Meet food group needs and stay within calorie limits. * Vegetables of all types—dark green; red and orange, peas. • Fruits, especially whole fruit • Grains, at least half of which are whole grain • Dairy, including fat-free or low-fat milk, yogurt, and cheese, Milk has long been seen as an important source of calcium and other nutrients, particularly for children. Researchers suggest that it is not a necessary part of a healthy diet for adults and may even be harmful if consumed excessively. • Protein foods, including lean meats, poultry, and eggs; seafood; beans, peas, and lentils; nuts, and seeds,

  4.  Limit foods and beverages higher in added sugars, saturated fat, and sodium, and limit alcoholic beverages. • Added sugars—Less than 10 percent of calories per day. • Saturated fat—Less than 10 percent of calories per day starting. • Sodium—Less than 2,300 milligrams per day • Alcoholic beverages—Drink in moderation by limiting intake to 2 drinks or less in a day for men and 1 drink or less in a day for women,

  5. Make half your plate fruits & vegetables. The benefits of healthy eating add up over time, bite by bite. It took ten years to get in the woods it will probably take you at least ten years to get out. YOU CAN'T CHANGE THE PAST; YOU HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THE FUTURE SO STAY FOCUSED ON THE DAY!!

REMEMBER TO LIMIT OR AVOID FOOD ITEMS THAT ARE CLASSIFIED AS CARCINOGENIC

  • Meats cooked at high temperatures, such as well-done, fried or barbecued meats, which form chemicals that may cause changes in your DNA, leading to cancer.

  • Alcoholic beverages.

  • Salted fish (Chinese style).

  • Burned or heavily barbecued foods.
