Take on health challenges during Nutrition Month Take on health challenges during Nutrition Month

More than 40 years ago, a campaign promoting healthy and balanced diets began in the U.S. Today this campaign in the U.S. has turned into National Nutrition Month.

We are joining in on this celebration by offering a series of health challenges that include key daily tips for leading a healthy diet.

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day: breakfast contributes a significant source of energy to the body so that it can be ready to start the day, full of energy.

Healthy snacks: a wide variety of options are now available that can help satiate your hunger in a healthy way.

Taking your lunch to work: balance the different food groups that provide the body with the nutrients it needs.

Healthy and creative lunches: a lot of creativity, motivation and imagination is needed in order to make your lunch appetizing, fun and nutritious.

Eating properly for exercising: a person that does moderate exercise should consume at least 15% of calories from fat after working out.

Reduce salt intake with natural substitutes: one good tactic is to keep salt shakers away from the kitchen table and maintain a balanced diet with the main food groups.
