National Nutrition Month

March 22, 2017 - Serving Seniors

 

 

 

National Nutrition Month is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

The theme for 2017 is “Put Your Best Fork Forward”, which acts as a reminder that each bite counts. Making small changes in our food choices to make healthier decisions can have a lasting impact on our overall health and well-being.  Being conscience about our health is especially important for older adults whether you are planning meals to prepare at home, joining us at one of our congregate dining sites or looking to become more active, Serving Seniors has your resources!

At Serving Seniors we strive to “Put Our Best Fork Forward” by offering many resources for seniors to stay healthy:

  • We serve meals at 10 congregate dining site that include a variety of healthful foods.
  • Hold cooking classes to help prepare seniors for healthy cooking on a budget at home.
  • Nurse Case Managers meet with seniors to help manage weight and other health-related needs.
  • And we have a variety of exercise activities to enjoy and be physically active most days of the week

Check out our website for more information about the classes, meals and nurse case management we offer for seniors to stay healthy!
