march26c1March has been set aside as National Nutrition Month. This healthy celebration is all about eating right and educating more people about making better food choices and committing to a healthier lifestyle.

This special educational month was created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to call attention to this need and help address the country’s obesity issues and health-related problems from living on fast food, sugar, and other poor food choices.march26c2

Other Ideas

While the month celebrates nutrition, you can still also think about an indoor green plant or flowers, which both offer a healthy environment for a home or office. Even balloons or a card is great encouragement for someone who may be trying to get into shape or has met their weight loss goals.

 

It’s all about celebrating health this month and every month going forward! We’re glad to help!
