It’s National Nutrition Month and the St. Louis Dairy Council wants to help you celebrate health, and make changes to your diet that result in more nutritious eating. The effort which was originally dubbed “National Nutrition Week” has evolved into a month long effort to promote better dietary choices.
Joyce Fikri with the St. Louis Dairy council while appearing on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show had more information on the history of National Nutrition Month, and said it’s a great time to take a look at what you’re eating.
Each year the event has a theme, with this year’s theme being “put your best fork forward”. The theme emphasizes that every single snack and meal is a chance to make small changes to your nutrition. Fikri said you should try working in several food groups into your diet each time you eat.
Fikri emphasized that it’s better to try to make small changes to your diet that lead to big results, rather than trying to change too much at once.
