Dear Parents,
March is “National Nutrition Month.” Good eating habits are important for your child, so I’d like to direct you to a great resource for families. In 2011, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) released the Choose My Plate food guidance system. The new system provides many options to help Americans make healthy food choices and to be active every day. This month is a perfect time for you and your family to explore this new tool! Check it out at:
Choose My Plate illustrates the five food groups that are the building blocks for a healthy diet using a familiar image—a place setting for a meal. Before you eat, think about what goes on your plate or in your cup or bowl.
Choose My Plate features selected messages to help consumer focus on key behaviors.
Selected messages include:
Balancing Calories
     Enjoy your food, but eat less.
                 Avoid oversized portions.
Foods to Increase
     Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
     Make at least half your grains whole grains.
     Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk.
     Foods to Reduce
            Foods to Reduce
Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread, and frozen meals—and choose   foods with lower numbers.
     Drink water instead of sugary drinks.
When you visit the My Plate website, you will find helpful hints and ideas on how to make healthier food selections, and ideas for becoming a more active family and/or individuals. The site includes healthy recipes, games and activities, printable personal eating and activity logs, and tips for encouraging children to make better food choices. Changes don’t need to be made overnight, but gradual improvement can be made from taking small steps together as a family!
After visiting the site, your family can discuss what you’ve learned over dinner. Don’t forget to ask your child to think about how improved nutrition can affect growth and performance in physical education and sport activities. Remember, kids need 60 minutes of physical activity each day, and so do adults. What a great way to connect healthy eating habits while helping your child to understand how her/his choices directly relate to physical ability and good health.
Enjoy being happy and healthy together,
Mrs. L. Dusek
Physical Education Teacher
