Mar 01, 2018

Provider blog by  Barbara J. Moschitta, MPS, RD, CDN

March is National Nutrition Month. The campaign focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.  Whether it’s starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast or fueling before an athletic event, the foods you choose can make a difference. Preparing foods to go further at home and within the community can have a positive impact, as well.

Every Thursday in March, we will be posting a healthy recipe with the help of our nutritionists.
