Tip of the Day

Eat Well for National Nutrition Month and Beyond

Even though National Nutrition Month has come to a close, continue to "Get Your Plate in Shape" and start practicing good eating habits that will last a lifetime.

  • Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. Eat a variety of vegetables, especially dark-green, red and orange vegetables plus beans and peas.
  • Make at least half your grains whole. Choose 100-percent whole grain breads, cereals, crackers, pasta and brown rice.
  • Switch to fat-free or low-fat milk.
  • Vary your protein choices. Eat a variety of foods from the protein food group each week, such as seafood, nuts and beans, as well as lean meat, poultry and eggs.
  • Cut back on sodium and empty calories from solid fats and added sugars. Drink water instead of sugary drinks. Compare sodium in foods and choose those with lower numbers.
  • Enjoy your food but eat less. Avoid oversized portions.
  • Be physically active your way. Pick activities that you like and start by doing what you can, at least 10 minutes at a time. Children and teens get 60 minutes or more a day, and adults get two hours and 30 minutes or more a week of activity that requires moderate effort such as brisk walking.
