It’s National Nutrition Month!

nutritionF3Every day is a good day to eat right and eat healthier, but each year, organizations devote the month of March to publicizing just how important it is to do as well as share great tips on how to make good eating fit you and your family’s hectic life.

About the Campaign

As the Eat Right Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics notes, National Nutrition Month is a campaign that they sponsor each year to help focus on the best strategies for eating right, consuming the right foods in the right quantities, and exercising daily.

The tips are geared toward people of all ages and lifestyles to show them just how easy it is to change daily habits for the better. It is about making informed choices and getting encouragement and direction to make an active change in your life.nutritionF2

On the 40th anniversary of this promotional campaign, this year’s theme is “Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day.” The point of this year’s theme is to illustrate how eating right doesn’t have to be based on a generic strategy for everyone.

Instead, it is about showing people how they can personalize their own eating right strategies to suit their tastes, their lifestyles, and their personal goals.

Part of eating healthier is learning what is available, just how easy it is to prepare, and just how delicious it is to eat. You may even be surprised at how many people will tell you that they begin craving fruits and vegetables as they make the switch to these healthier choices and stop getting by on greasy, fatty, and salty foods.

Our Part in Eating Right

To encourage you to make eating right a priority as well as to help you help others to do the same, we have lined up a bountiful selection of fresh fruit baskets that make sweet, juicy, and tempting gifts for family, friends, and colleagues – not to mention gifting yourself!nutritionF1

Our range of fruit baskets illustrate that good health does not have to cost a lot of money. Our baskets come in various sizes and quantities to fit your budget and your taste. Some include more exotic fruits like Kiwis, pears, and pineapple while others also add gourmet nibbles like cheese, crackers, and, yes, even a few chocolates!

Nature’s goodness comes in all types of easy-to-open-and-eat packages that are easy to take to work or on the go. Reaching for an apple, orange, banana or grapes is definitely a better choice than eating the drive-through or reaching for a donut when you grab a coffee.

It takes time and you don’t have to make all the changes in one go. Start with small changes like a piece of fruit every day as a snack and gradually work toward re-making your dietary choices each day. nutritionF4

Whether it is making up a monthly meal plan to stay on track, joining a gym, or getting more sleep each night, everything you do will make it a step in the right direction!
