ETX nutrition carnival today--Education, fresh fruit, and more!

Released by: NET HEALTH

Tyler (TX) –National Nutrition Month is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the American Dietetic Association. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.  This year the Northeast Texas Public Health District (NET Health) will focus on healthier food choices you can make to incorporate into your daily lifestyle.   

National Nutrition Month also promotes the American Dietetic Association and its members to the public and the media as the most valuable and credible source of timely, scientifically based food and nutrition information. The theme for March 2013 is "Eat Right, Your Way, and Every Day."

"Making a positive change in your eating habits can impact your entire family.  Poor nutrition and sedentary lifestyles are the most important factors in contributing to the rise of obesity in the adults and children of East Texas", says George Roberts, CEO of NET Health.

The food and physical activity choices made everyday affect your health and how you feel today and in the future. Eating a nutritious diet and engaging in regular physical activity may reduce chronic diseases, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and certain cancers. Furthermore, poor diet and physical inactivity are the most important factors contributing to the rise in obesity in this country.

George T. Roberts, Jr.
Chief Executive Officer

 

You can participate in the Nutrition Carnival Friday at the NET Health WIC Clinic, 815 N Broadway, Tyler, from 9:30 a.m. until noon.
