March is National Nutrition Month. This year’s theme is “Eat Right – Bite by Bite.”
The Government Publishing Office Online Bookstore offers the following titles to help you do just that.
The Food Model Booklet is designed for all ages and lifestyles. It’s not intended to represent one particular food, but rather to help identify and estimate portion sizes. This fun and different booklet provides three-dimensional models used in a mobile exam center to provide nutritional assessments of portion size estimation. Participants use the pictures of various dishes and graphs, and even a chicken chart to estimate portion sizes of foods consumed.
Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2015-2020 This authoritative resource for policymakers and nutrition and health professionals provides guidance for individuals ages two years and older and their families to consume a healthy, nutritionally adequate diet. Dietary guidelines provided in this publication present the idea that a healthy eating pattern is not a rigid prescription, but rather, an adaptable framework in which individuals can enjoy foods that meet their personal, cultural, and traditional preferences and fit within their budget.
Being scientific about the selection of food groups, cooking methods and safety doesn’t mean you have to give up taste. In fact, these publications prove quite the opposite. Dietary researchers work exceptionally hard to keep the “joy in cooking” and eating but simply in more healthy ways.
