A: The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics celebrate National Nutrition Month in March. This campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.
We are fortunate to have many fantastic resources right at our fingertips here in Greene County to help guide us in this campaign. We have the community center and all of ITS helpful staff to keep us physical. We have physical therapy options at the medical center and at our facility. The medical center offers dietitians, diabetic counseling and many other valuable resources through ITS patient-centered care initiatives. The thriving Greene County Farmers Market will be gearing up for another great season soon, alongside the local farmers who are taking great strides in providing quality food options for the residents of Greene County. We are excited to offer chef designed menu focusing on well prepared food and the dining experience. For example, French cuisine that includes foods such as French onion soup, chicken cordon bleu, beef bourguignon and strawberry crepes. All of the food is prepared with fresh ingredients, from scratch and is beautifully presented. You don’t have to live in the big cities to have all of these great resources. Take the time to check out Greene County and how we can be leaders in food choice and quality. Go to www.eatright.org to find out more about National Nutrition Month.
