Eating For Your Eye Health - FN709

We cannot change our genetic inheritance, but we can exercise and eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables.

 

Nourish Your Bones - FN1488

Keeping our bones healthy is a lifelong process. As we get older, our bodies may break down bone faster than we can make new bone. This can cause problems if our bones don’t have enough stored nutrients to keep them strong. Eating nutrient-rich foods and getting weight-bearing physical activity help keep our bones in good shape no matter what our age.

 

Fellowship Food: Nourishing the Body and the Soul - FN1449

Help people stay healthy by providing nourishing options. Many people shortchange themselves on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Eating a diet rich in these foods can promote good health by helping reduce our risk of heart disease, cancer and other diseases. If you are bringing a dish to a potluck, consider providing the veggies, fruits or whole grains. Bring a large nutrient-rich salad with a variety of greens and sprinkle with dried fruit and nuts or seeds. Bring whole-grain bread or crackers.

 

What Color is Your Food? - FN595

People need different amounts of fruits and vegetables depending on their age, gender and amount of daily physical actiivity. Taste a rainbow of fruits and vegetables for better health.
