National Nutrition Month Riverview FLWe all know that discussions about good dietary habits and nutrition take place every day almost everywhere. Families talk about it at home, teachers discuss it in schools and doctors, nurses and registered nutritionists discuss good nutrition with patients.

Many people believe that flavor must be sacrificed when eating nutritious foods. This is far from true. Some research confirms that taste is more important than nutrition when choosing one food over another. Realistically, the foods people enjoy most are usually the ones they eat. Therefore, setting healthy eating standards that also satisfy the taste buds is important to family nutrition.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics promotes National Nutrition Month in March to show how to mix good taste and nutrition with healthy meals. This year’s theme is “Savor the Flavor of Eating Right.” Check out the 7 Kitchen Staples for Teen-Friendly Meals.Read more on Celebrate National Nutrition Month…

Children's Dental Health Month Riverview FLThe National Children’s Dental Health Month campaign in February brings together thousands of dedicated educators, dental professionals, health care providers and others to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their parents, teachers, caregivers and others each and every year.

This year the 2016 NCDHM campaign features the slogan “Sugar Wars” on both sides of the poster. The Smileys, McGrinns and K9 are in a spaceship, the USS SweetSwatter. It is equipped with toothbrush swatters, fighting against the Sweet Tooth Invaders for good oral health. On the reverse side, preteen/teenagers demonstrate effective ways to defeat the effects of sugar and maintain good oral health by brushing, flossing, rinsing and eating healthy snacks.
