March is National Nutrition Month and I am so excited to share with you a few products and services that will help you make good health choices. Did you know that by simply swapping out a few choices you can make the choice to incorporate healthy habits?
This year health and nutrition have been at the forefront of my daily routine. A daily walk, yoga class or 30 minutes of activity combined with healthy food choices have made a difference in how I feel and I feel good, which is important!
Celebrate National Nutrition Month
Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) and Healthy Schools
Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) is a nonprofit bringing together educators and families to create healthier schools and communities that support the physical and emotional health of children.
As a former teacher, I saw first-hand how healthy meals and choices made an impact on my students. According to a national survey by AFHK, 76% of parents say they have improved their own habits based on something their child told them about health and well-being, which is another reason why it’s so important children learn about health and nutrition at school.
We have made a difference by having our kids try new foods and being active. We go for hikes on the weekends as a family and their sports and dance activities during the week keeps them active and is important for them, mentally and physically.
