Plan programs for healthy eating
Nutrition is an important component of the physical dimension of wellness. After all, good nutrition in concert with physical activity helps older adults maintain a healthy weight, reduce their risk of chronic disease and enjoy overall health (Dietary Guidelines for American, 2010).
March is National Nutrition Month in Canada and the United States. Both the Dietitians of Canada and the American Dietetic Association promote this month by providing educational materials for consumers and health professionals to use. These materials provide a rich store of information for hosting healthy eating events during March.
