March is National Nutrition Month. This is to help educate about eating a healthy diet. Eating healthy is something we should all strive for. For children, it helps them grow properly. Teaching them about proper nutrition at a young age aids them as they grow to know what to eat as adults too.

Eating healthy foods can help us prevent chronic medical conditions, better the symptoms of some medical conditions, especially Diabetes, Cardiac problems, Obesity and more. It’s best not to think of healthy eating as dieting or using the top diet pills. It is more of a lifestyle change. As you learn what to eat and taste new things it becomes part of your life.

The main things to remember about proper nutrition are:

  • Eating smaller meals with less meat and more vegetables
  • Avoid fats and sweets
  • Eat at least five servings of fruits or vegetable per day
  • Avoid processed foods
  • Increase your fiber intake
  • Drink less or no sodas at all

There is a lot of information about nutrition. The American Dietetic Association is a great website to begin. Make small changes and soon you can be on your way to healthier eating.

  3. I agree wholeheartedly getting started early on healthy eating will establish a path to healthy eating as children get older. It’s never too late for anyone to take a look at their eating habits and adjust them accordingly.

    Great reminder! :)

  5. I’m eating more often in smaller meals these days but I have yet to eat 4-5 servings of fruit and vegetables… something to work on.

    Thanks for the healthy reminders. Health is so crucial and worth investing in early on rather than paying later for the consequences of not being healthy.
