“One size doesn’t fit all” is the logo on MyPyramid.gov.
If you haven’t checked the site out yet that would be a great activity to do for National Nutrition Month. The site offers guidelines for adults and children, interactive tools and pod casts about nutrition.
Some useful tips include:
Increase your calcium rich foods
Go lean with your protein (lean meat selections)
Increase your intake of whole grains (eat 3 ounces of whole grains every day)
Vary your fruit and vegetable selections but go easy on the sweetened fruit juices
Make more foods from scratch using fresh ingredients to decrease your sodium intake from processed foods
