Now is a great a time to focus attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating habits.
Choosing to eat nutritiously isn't about fad diets or quick fixes for weight loss or gain. Nutrition is about focusing on foods that fuel your body while treating it with love and respect. Small adjustments to your diet can make big differences throughout your life.
An easy way to improve your diet is to pay attention nutrition labels. Foods that come in packages tend to have hidden ingredients, so it’s helpful to learn how to read the label. And most nutrition labels can be found online via the product's website, so you can plan your grocery list and choose healthier alternatives, if needed, before you go to the store.
