Nutrition Month

March is Nutrition Month

Did you know? March is Nutrition Month! This is a great time to explore and learn about food. An important part of this is food literacy, which includes having the knowledge and skills to grow, choose, prepare, and talk about food. 

Some ways to engage your family during Nutrition Month:

·       Get kids involved in meal planning. Ask them to help choose recipes, write out grocery lists and explore grocery store flyers.

·       Make cooking a family event! Kids can participate in age-appropriate tasks, such as measuring ingredients or setting the table.

·       Enjoy meals together when you are able. Mealtimes can be a great time to connect in conversation. 

·       Start planning for an indoor or outdoor garden. This is a great way to explore where our food comes from.
