Throughout the month of March there will be healthy meals served and great new recipes to try in the cafeteria. There will also be nutritional trivia questions weekly through Meditech and a drawing for a door prize for the correct answers.  This is all a part of “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right.” While taste drives most food choices, eating nutrient-rich foods that provide the most nutrition per calorie is one of the best ways to “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right.”. As part of the 2014 National Nutrition Month theme, everyone is encouraged to choose the most nutritionally-packed foods. And to help with those choices the cafeteria will have:

-Healthy Breakfast served every Wednesday morning

-Healthy lunch items served daily

-Healthy dessert served on Friday during lunch

-Samples given out daily

There will also be the Wheel of Nutrition on March 11 & 25 If you answer a question correctly you win a prize!
