'Put Your Best Fork Forward' during National Nutrition Month | News | The Press and Standard
Walterboro Live

Caron Sharp, clinical nutrition manager at Colleton Medical Center, notes the importance of healthy eating one fork-full at a time. âVariety is the spice of life and a balanced diet. Itâs easy to get stuck in a routine of eating from the same food groups at every meal. You can close the gap on these nutrients by filling your plate with more fruits, vegetables, dairy, lean protein and whole grains,â said Sharp.Here are several tips to put your best fork forward:n Focus on water for hydration and avoid sodas, juices and alcohol;n Fill half of your plate with colorful fruits and vegetables;n Parents â consider modeling healthful eating habits for your children by taking time to plan, prepare and eat meals with your family;n Plan your meals to help reduce food waste, keep to a budget, and limit fast food consumption;n Eat slowly;n Be mindful and think positively about your food choices and portion sizes.
