March is National Nutrition Month!

The latest data from the Centers for Disease Control reminds us that 40% of American adults and 20% of adolescents (6-19 years of age) are obese. These are the highest rates ever recorded in the United States! Choosing to eat from all five food groups helps in achieving a well-balanced diet, and consuming a variety of foods from within these groups provides the nutrients needed to fuel the body. By combining healthy food choices with increased fitness levels and portion control, MORE HEALTH students are empowered with the knowledge to make healthy lifestyle decisions.

MORE HEALTH’s is thrilled to offer the following Nutrition lessons in the Tampa Bay area.

Nutrition “Fueled for Success”
Fitness, Nutrition, and Bone Health “Fit for Life”
Nutrition and Fitness “Eat Healthy…Be Active”
Nutrition and Fitness “Healthy and Fit”

Thank you Tampa Bay Rays, Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, and Frozen and Refrigerated Foods of Central Florida for helping us provide nutrition education to children, teens and adults in our communities.
