Nutrition Month celebrates every little bite


When it comes to eating right, every little bit (or bite!) of nutrition is a step in the right direction. In March, National Nutrition Month® and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is reminding people to Eat Right, Bite by Bite.

The month-long celebration shows how nutrition doesn’t have to be overwhelming. In fact, making small goals and small dietary changes can have a lasting, positive effect on your overall health, says Moda Health’s Supervisor of Wellness & Operations, Taylor Bruner.

“Many people think ‘eating healthier’ means you have to completely overhaul your diet, so they mistakenly change way too much over a short period of time. These types of big changes are often unsustainable when made all at once,” she said.

“Better nutrition can be as simple as making one little change in your day. It’s much easier to change a little bit here and there to create sustainable change over time. If we focus on small, incremental changes and goals, we end up reaching our goals more often. This keeps us on track over a longer period of time, and ultimately, we see more results.”

With a Master’s in Science Nutrition from the National University of Natural Medicine, Bruner’s job is to lend her expertise to help others understand the connection between nutrition and health. She’s always open to providing tips that help people make better food choices and eat better, such as:
