Ready to celebrate healthy eating? This year’s theme, “Go Further With Food,” is a great reminder of food’s important role as fuel for the body. It’s also an opportunity to provide savvy shoppers with tips to stretch the weekly grocery budget in ways that avoid food waste.
In honor of the occasion, The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has posted tip sheets, games and handouts to share on their website. Several of the top nutrition journals are celebrating, as well, and free, downloadable copies of recent nutrition articles are available online for a limited time. And, ChooseMyPlate.gov has launched MyPlate, MyState, a teacher-oriented site to help classes, students and families find out which foods and flavors a state is known for and how they fit into a healthy eating plan. Happy March!
