Put Your best fork forward

The Get Healthy team is encouraging everyone to “Put Your Best Fork Forward” for National Nutrition Month.  The annual observance was created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and serves as a reminder that every bite counts. In addition to inspiring everyone to take small steps to improve their healthy eating habits – one forkful at a time – this month is also a time to encourage people to incorporate more physical activities into their daily routines. For moderately active adults, the recommended daily amount of fruit is 2 cups each day and 2 ½ half cups of vegetables. This is a great time to download many of our resources to help you develop healthier eating habits and eat the recommended of fruits and veggies.  We have several free nutrition related mobile apps and resources to make eating healthier fun and easier.
