New York State Senate Health Chair Senator Kemp Hannon is reminding Long Islanders that March is the start of National Nutrition Month. Perhaps you have drifted from healthy habits? It’s not too late to get back on track.
Nutrition is essential at every stage of life to keep our bodies running their best. Understanding the different necessities of nutrition for different age groups is crucial in gaining and maintaining good health.
Keeping meals colorful is a helpful and easy idea for promoting nutrition. When you make healthy eating a family affair, everyone benefits. Remembering that small changes can make a big difference is important. Losing or gaining weight in a healthy manner comes from understanding the balance between food intake and physical activity. Make your March a month of great health and nutrition for both yourself and your family.
