March is National Nutrition Month
Please stress the importance of good nutrition and physical activity as key components to a healthy lifestyle. Try to cut down on junk food and increase physical activity. Keep healthy snacks in mind and limit sweets. Always start your child’s day with a healthy breakfast. Remember to send in healthy snacks with your child including fruits and vegetables. Snacks can play an important role in meeting kids’ nutrient needs. Choosing foods from all of the food groups will give them the energy they need between meals. When kids eat well and move more, they are better prepared to learn.
