We have a brand-new poster in the Nutrition Education Store, and we thought we'd celebrate its introduction with a new series!
The Building Blocks of Health!
Now, we all know that a healthy eating pattern and regular physical activity are the keys to good health, but today we're going to zoom in on that eating pattern and take a look at just what makes up a healthy approach.
That's where the building blocks come in. Each post will feature a different kind of food that is key to good health. We'll look at why those foods are good for you and then offer some recipes that feature each set.
How fun is that?
Today we're just doing an overview. Here's what you can expect over the next few weeks...
- Whole Grains
- Lean Proteins and Seafood
- Low-Fat Dairy
Let us know if there's anything you'd especially like to see in this upcoming series!
