It’s National Nutrition Month!
Let’s face it, we all could be doing a little (or a lot) more to live healthier lives. It’s good to know that there are people out there that want to help us get on the right path! Here are some organizations that are helping us get motivated and learn tricks and tips to getting healthier.
It’s been 5 years since First Lady Michelle Obama launched her “Let’s Move” campaign. This initiation encourages children (however, people of all ages should take up these healthy habits!) to get active and eat better for healthier lives. View their “Cheers to Five Years of Let’s Move!” blog post and also facts, ways to eat healthy, get active and more!
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is helping to celebrate National Nutrition Month by giving us “Ten Ways to Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle During [and after] National Nutrition Month”. They provide motivation to staying healthy such as, eating right and exercising to win a Presidential Active Lifestyle Award. Another motivator would be, putting yourself out there and using our First Lady’s “Let’s Move” #GimmeFive hashtag to document your healthy actions on social media. Read the rest of the tips, motivators and nutrition advice here.
