Stock Up with Healthy Options

March is National Nutrition Month so grab your 'rents, clean out the fridge and restock it with healthy options. With an entire month to work on eating better, you have no excuse not to!

Officials estimate that only 10 percent of kids eat the recommended allowance (5 servings or more!) of fruits and veggies a day, according the The Baltimore Sun. Simply adding fruits and vegetables to meals could be a big improvement to reach the 5 daily. So don’t worry, you don’t have to ditch all your fave snacks. Just try to give each meal an extra boost of nutrition-stocked goodness.

Our top tip for making sure you get plenty of vitamins from your food? Try to eat colorfully. Greens (kale, broccoli, peas) are great but try to eat orange foods (butternut squash, tangerines), reds (tomatoes, peppers) and yellows (bananas, chickpeas), too, just to name a few!
