Tel Hai Celebrates National Nutrition Month: March 2017

During National Nutrition Month®, celebrated each March, the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics and Tel Hai Retirement Community encourages everyone to “Put Your Best Fork Forward” by making small, healthy shifts in food choices when cooking at home.

The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend making small changes to eating patterns to include healthier ingredients while cooking at home. Choosing a variety of healthful foods across and within all food groups helps reduce the risk of preventable, lifestyle-related chronic diseases including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity. Making dietary and lifestyle changes can help prevent diseases before they occur. During National Nutrition Month and beyond try to make small, healthier food choices – one forkful at a time.
Here are some suggestions, try to eat more of these foods:

  • Vegetables, including dark green, red and orange, beans, peas and others
  • Fruits, especially whole fruits
  • Whole grains
  • Fat-free or low-fat dairy including milk, yogurt, cheese and fortified soy beverages
  • Protein foods including seafood, lean meats, poultry, nuts, soy products, beans and peas
  • Oils including canola, corn, olive, peanut, sunflower and soy

To find a personalized plan that works best, consult with a registered dietitian nutritionist. RDNs can provide sound, easy-to-follow nutrition advice to meet your lifestyle, preferences and health-related needs.
