March is Nutrition Month!
Did you know that March is Nutrition Month? Nutrition Month is a great time to evaluate your eating habits and find ways to improve your diet.
The theme for Nutrition Month this year is “Enjoy the taste of eating right.” After all, foods that are good for you don’t have to taste bad. On the contrary, many of the most healthful foods are also the most delicious.
March Goal Inspiration:
How will you eat better in the month of March? Is now a good time to choose new foods to try? Or to cut down on some foods that you know are bad for your health? Or both?
One great way to improve your diet without a lot of work is by using MyPlate. MyPlate is a guide to better eating, every day. Get the details at www.choosemy plate.gov. If you would like to try using MyPlate to achieve your goals, consider making one “MyPlate meal” per day. If that goes well, you can increase the number of meals that follow MyPlate.
Another way to enjoy the taste of eating right while improving your eating habits is to substitute healthful foods for the unhealthful ones that are offering you nothing but empty calories. For example, try a bowl of oatmeal instead of a sugary muffin or scone that has only refined grains. The oatmeal has way more nutrients and fiber than most processed baked goods. Or choose low-fat or nonfat milk instead of whole milk — it’s just as high in calcium, but is way lower in saturated fat than regular milk.

The FDA has proposed an update for the Nutrition Facts label on packaged foods. This update would reflect the latest scientific information, including the link between diet and chronic diseases like obesity and heart disease. The proposed label would also replace out-of-date serving sizes with options that reflect how much food people actually eat. It would even feature a fresh design that highlights key parts of the label (like calories and serving sizes). We asked our dietitian editor, Lynn Greiger, RDN, CDE, to give us her opinion about the proposed changes and how they will affect nutrition educators and consumers. Here are her 4 likes and 2 dislikes for the proposed label.
