As obesity rates increase and over-eating continues to be a large social issue in our country, Get Healthy, Greenfield! is hoping to engage Greenfield residents and provide resources on the importance of healthy eating.
Appropriate, adequate, and safe food and nutrition requires a regular and sufficient consumption of nutritious foods throughout an individual's lifespan. This begins at infancy, as breast-feeding provides many beneficial nutrients that are vital for normal growth and development of children.
Nutrition also requires a balanced diet, complete with appropriate servings of vegetables, fruits, dairy, grains, and protein.
Making healthy food can be a fun, family-oriented experience. Farmer's markets are a great way to get affordable and fresh food right from your own neighborhood.
