National Nutrition Month

Good afternoon - March is National Nutrition Month!

If you have been feeling sluggish lately, it may be your body’s way of telling you to eat more nutrient-rich foods.  Good nutrition, along with keeping physically active, sleeping well and managing your stress, is important to healthy aging and reinforces your body’s first line of defense against stress and illness.  March is National Nutrition Month, and included below are several resources on healthy eating.
