(NAPSI)—Although the Academy
of Nutrition and
Dietetics has declared March to be National Nutrition Month®, it's
a good idea to eat healthfully all year long. The 2018 campaign focuses on
the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating
and physical activity habits and its theme is "Go Further with Food."
How To Live Better And Save
Here are six hints on how:
1. Consider the foods you have on hand before buying more.
2. Buy only the amount that can be eaten or frozen within a few days and
plan ways to use leftovers later in the week. This can also help reduce food
loss and waste and save you money.
3. Be mindful of portion sizes.
4. Learn about healthy eating from a registered dietitian nutritionist. RDNs can provide sound, easy-to-follow, personalized
nutrition advice to meet your lifestyle, preferences and health-related
5. Find activities that you enjoy and be physically active most days of
the week. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends at
least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous
aerobic activity a week for most adults.
6. 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 real
difference. Include a variety of healthful foods from all the food groups on
a regular basis. It can help to follow the USDA MyPlate
system of healthful eating, including filling at least half your plate each
meal with fruits and vegetables, less than a quarter of it with lean meats or
other sources of protein, and the rest with whole grains.
