March is National Nutrition Month

Eating well is fundamental to good health and well-being.  A healthy eating pattern can help us to maintain a healthy weight and reduce our risk for disease such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers.  It also promotes strong bones and teeth, can improve our mood and energy levels, and is important to our overall brain health (i.e. memory, prevention of brain diseases like Alzheimer’s dementia and cognitive decline).
