Each March the
Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics sponsors educational campaigns during National Nutrition Month. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making
informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity
habits. The theme for 2016 is "Savor the Flavor of Eating Right," which
encourages everyone to take time to enjoy food traditions and appreciate
the pleasures, great flavors and social experiences food can add to our
How, when, why and where we eat are just as important as what we eat.
Develop a mindful eating pattern that includes nutritious and flavorful
foods — that's the best way to savor the flavor of eating right! This theme is perfect for New Mexico with its traditions around food. Follow my blog this month as I will share a tip a day to help you add nutritious foods to your family traditions.
