March is Nutrition Month
And good nutrition isn't just for adults. Good and bad habits start early. Today, too many children are getting adult conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure. Did you know nearly 1 in 3 children in America is overweight or obese? And 1 in 3 children born in 2000 or later will suffer from type 2 diabetes at some point in their lives while others will face chronic obesity-related health problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and asthma. That's why it's important to make healthy eating and exercise part of your family's lifestyle. Model and promote healthy habits that will last your children a lifetime.
The link between good nutrition and healthy weight, reduced chronic disease risk, and overall health is too important to ignore. By taking steps to eat healthy, you'll be on your way to getting the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy, active, and strong. As with physical activity, making small changes in your diet can go a long way, and it's easier than you think.
