March is National Nutrition Month

Teaching our children about healthy nutrition habits early is important to their lifelong health. The Healthy Eating Plate gives a great visual to how we should choose our foods.


Vegetables: Choose a variety of vegetables to provide healthy nutrients. Vegetables are low calorie, nutrient dense foods.


Fruits: Think of the rainbow and choose many different colored fruits.


Whole Grains: Whole grains are an important part of the diet. Choose whole wheat, brown rice, quinoa, and products made from these such as whole wheat pasta and whole wheat bread. Avoid processed options such as white bread, white pasta, white rice, etc. These provide less nutrition and break down faster in the body increasing the amount of glucose in the system.


Healthy Protein: Beans, peas, nuts, seeds, fish, eggs, and poultry. Limit red meat (beef, pork, lamb). Avoid processed meats such as bacon, deli meats, hot dogs, and sausages.


Fat: Fat is necessary to the diet, but we should be choosing healthy fats. These include options such as avocados, almonds, extra virgin olive oil, canola oil, peanut oil, and sunflower oil.


Dairy: Research is ongoing as the the appropriate amount of dairy we should be eating daily. Dairy provides Vitamin D and calcium, so if you are unable to eat dairy, it’s important to find alternative sources for these. Healthy dairy options include unflavored milk, plain yogurt, and small amounts of cheese.
