There's no better time to take charge of your health than right now. March is National Nutrition Month and all over the country, schools and child care centers have begun to implement healthy school meals into their nutritional programs. To date, approximately 90 percent of school districts are meeting these new nutritional standards. Yet schools aren't the only ones making sure those they serve receive healthy meals. Senior care providers are making an effort to ensure older adults receive the dietary and nutritional support they need.
In an endeavor to meet these nutritional essentials, the Administration on Aging (AoA) provides grants to help fund healthy meal programs for seniors throughout the country. From home-delivered meals for older adults to those administered in a variety of group settings such as senior health seniors, the AoA assists service providers in meeting the dietary needs of seniors.
What Can I Do To Stay Healthy?
Aside from grants and senior nutritional programs provided through the AoA, there are things you can do on your own to take charge of your health. Where should you start? Know your plate—of which half should consist of fruits and vegetables. Our National Nutrition Month: Know Your Plate Infographic details this and other healthy eating tips for seniors, as well as others who want to take charge of their health.
Now that you're on your way to a more healthier lifestyle, keep in mind that healthy eating should extend beyond National Nutrition Month. Remember the tips above and share them with your friends and family. Download the infographic today!
