March is National Nutrition Month®!
JPMA and Baby Safety Zone are celebrating National Nutrition Month® — but don't forget-healthy eating is something for all year long!
March is National Nutrition Month,® a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses on helping people make the right choices when it comes to food and exercise.
As parents, we all know that getting our children to eat what is good for them is not always an easy-or even achievable-task. Since this is a growing trend, there are numerous websites to reference for family-friendly recipes that not only taste great but also provide nutritional value! Better yet, they also offer fun activities and way to engage all members of the family when preparing them. We also even found worksheets that children can color and complete while learning about healthy eating. Bonus to the worksheets? You’re guaranteed at least a few minutes of quiet time while they color.
Here are some of the websites we found. If you have found more, post them on our Baby Safety Zone Facebook page and share the wealth!
