Giant Food Nutritionist Visits Churchill Road ES

Giant Nutritionist Amanda Barnes taught approximately 120 children at Churchill Road Elementary School about balanced meals using the USDA MyPlate icon, which shows you how to create a healthy plate at every meal, on Friday, March 27.

Some tips included filling half your plate with fruits and veggies, choosing small portions of lean protein, switching to low-fat or fat-free dairy products and making sure at least half the grains you eat are whole grains. Children were encouraged to live and healthy and active lifestyle in accordance with this year’s theme for National Nutrition Month, “Bite Into a Healthy Lifestyle Everywhere You Go.”
