The theme for National Nutrition Month this year is Celebrate a World of Flavors. Frances Largeman Roth is a nutritionist and registered dietitian who is the best-selling author of numerous books, including Eating in Color. Her premise is that eating colorful foods usually means a healthy menu. Francis shares some tips for sticking to a daily routine that includes colorful, high-quality and nutritionally sound snacks and meals.
FOODS THAT ARE NUTRITIOUS
Eating healthier has never been easier. Hope Foods, the original organic hummus brand, is on a mission to introduce healthy, high-quality and wonderfully flavorful food to the world, including their popular hummus line, which is freshly crafted with organic extra virgin olive oil. And while most hummus brands use cheap filler oils, Hope Foods is the only national brand to use 100% organic extra virgin olive oil. Try Hope Hummus, including their popular Sea Salt and Olive Oil, for a flavor difference. For more information, visit hopefoods.com
Consumers desire healthier foods, and appreciation for the role food can play in impacting health and well-being is rising. 77% of adults are looking to food and products to support their immune system, with 44% looking to yogurt, which leads to product innovation hitting store shelves. The new Activia+ Multi-Benefit Probiotic Yogurt Drinks are packed with billions of live and active probiotics to support gut health. It is also packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Zinc to help support the immune system. Drinking Activia twice a day for two weeks as a part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle may help reduce the frequency of minor digestive discomfort.
CHOICES FOR CHILDREN
As a mother of three, Frances knows about making mealtime fun and nutritious. For this, she recommends organic meals and snacks from Sprout Organics. Sprout is known for making veggie-forward foods with all organic ingredients for babies and toddlers that the little ones love and parents can feel good about. Sprout is now partnering with CoComelon to bring the lovable characters to life on their packaging, making mealtime even more fun. For more information, visit sproutorganics.com
