In celebration of Nutrition Month, we’re sharing ways to eat well when access to fresh food may be an obstacle.
Nutrition month, designed to raise awareness about the importance of nutrition, invites everyone to learn about making informed food choices to develop healthy eating habits. Understanding the impact of food on our health is essential for maintaining our bodily functions, and supporting our growth and development. It can also help reduce the risk of diet-related diseases. At The Sylvia Center, we teach young people and families how to prepare affordable healthy meals by incorporating more fruits and vegetables. But eating healthy can be a challenge if you do not have access to fresh produce or are on a budget. Here are some healthy tips and tricks for how to build a nutritious diet in other ways!
