“Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle” . . . JCPH Celebrates March as National Nutrition Month

Jefferson County Public Health’s (JCPH) Nutrition Services dietitians and WIC educators (Women, Infants and Children) are celebrating National Nutrition Month by offering the latest in nutritional guidelines and educational information, as well as healthy recipes for you to “Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle” as this year’s theme encourages. “Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle” is meant to encourage individuals to make food and physical activity plans that focus on lowering calorie intake, making smart and empowered healthy food choices and getting daily exercise in order to achieve and maintain a healthy weight, reduce the risk of chronic disease, and promote overall health. These are all things JCPH dietitians and WIC educators work with helping individuals and families to achieve on a daily basis. The importance of making informed food choices and creating healthy eating and physical activity habits for overall health cannot be over emphasized. Take a step towards a healthier lifestyle today and visit the JCPH Nutrition Services web page or our social media sites to get some new educational handouts and healthy recipes for you and your family! Mix together with a little physical activity, and you’ve got the recipe for a healthier Jefferson County!

There is a wealth of information on the internet and through various social media applications regarding nutrition and maintaining a healthy weight. However, nothing quite compares to the expertise and practicing knowledge of registered dietitian nutritionists. Wednesday, March 11, 2015 is Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) Day. The day offers an opportunity to recognize RDNs for their excellence and commitment to helping people create and enjoy healthy lives.
