Health Net Urges Parents to
March is National Nutrition Month®
March is National Nutrition Month®, and Health Net is seeking to increase awareness – particularly among parents – regarding the importance of providing children with nutrient-rich foods and beverages.
"Nutrients – including protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals – are high on the list of the building blocks for proper growth," says Jonathan Scheff, M.D., chief medical officer for Health Net, Inc. "Because children's bodies and minds are still developing, it's especially critical that they consistently consume high-quality nutrients. That way they'll have less room for – and may be less tempted by nutrient-poor choices such as candy and soda. Plus, if children start out on a healthy path early in life, they're more likely to become nutrition-conscious adults."
It was with this goal in mind, Scheff noted, that Health Net created its Healthy Kids program, through which parents can access tools and resources to help family members embrace healthy-eating habits and regular exercise.
Health Net members also can enroll in a Healthy Living program that includes personalized meal plans, healthy recipes and strategies to make smart choices when dining out.
Another program, Fit Families for Life, is for Health Net Medi-Cal members and offers home-based and telephonic coaching programs, a workbook, cookbook and a DVD featuring a host of nutrition tips along with low-impact exercises. Nutrient-Smart Tips
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics – which has sponsored National Nutrition Month for 40 years – offers the following practical tips to add nutrient-rich foods and beverages to your daily diet:
