As part of National Nutrition Month, the Nutrition and Dietetics club, in association with Be Well, encourages students to live healthy and active lifestyles. The theme of this year’s event is “Eat right, your way, every day”. Having an overall balanced diet is the most important focus of eating well; it does not have to mean giving up your favorite foods. Incorporating your tastes and food preferences can lead to a healthful diet. Variety and moderation are key components of a balanced eating plan, and you can do it “your way, every day.”
