The Partnership Center Newsletter

March 25, 2010

In This Issue:


Dear Partners,

As March comes to a close, we wanted to acknowledge National Nutrition month.  Here at HHS, many divisions work on nutrition issues, as well as related topics such as obesity, diabetes, physical activity and more. I know these are areas of interest and focus for many of your organizations as well.
Please see this week’s featured update section to hear more about the importance of nutrition, as well as ways that you can be involved in answering the First Lady’s call to action on solving the nation’s obesity crisis by addressing nutrition issues.  
As always, please see the bottom section of our newsletter for an updated and expanded grants section filled with information regarding grants available to faith-based and community non-profits like yours.

Sincerely,

Alexia Kelley, Director
Center for Faith-Based & Neighborhood Partnerships
US Department of Health & Human Services

Featured Update 

March is National Nutrition Month

National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the American Dietetic Association. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

Our sister division, the Administration on Aging, had this to say about National Nutrition Month:

The theme for the 2010 National Nutrition Month® is “Nutrition from the Ground Up.”

Eating right and being fit are keys to staying healthy throughout life. Help feel your best by learning how to make healthy food choices – especially those that are lower in calories and packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber and other nutrients – and by being physically active every day.

To learn more about National Nutrition Month® and to obtain permission for materials usage, please go to http://www.eatright.org/NNM/

The ADA has proposed several simple solutions for making healthy nutrition decisions.

  • Make sure to get the recommended daily amounts of all food groups – including the ever-difficult fruits and vegetables.  Having a diet full of variety is also very important.
  • Beware of foods that are high in saturated or trans fats, cholesterol, salt, and sugar!
  • Keeping portion sizes in mind during meal-time and when snacking.  Calories can add up quickly, so try to choose nutrient-dense foods that are loaded with vitamins and minerals.
  • Be sure to include physical activity as a vital component for healthful living.  Adults should be striving for at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day.
  • Remember that healthful eating starts at home.  Preparing and eating well-balanced meals together as a family promotes healthy attitudes toward food, and empowers individual to make wise choices in the future.

Also this month, First Lady Michelle Obama spoke at the School Nutrition Association Conference on the topic of her Let’s Move campaign.  Mrs. Obama talked about the struggles our country is currently facing in regards to the alarming rates of childhood obesity.  Of course, nutrition is a vital piece of this puzzle, and one that the First Lady plans on focusing on in Let’s Move.

One key aspect of the Let’s Move campaign is “helping parents make healthy family choices.”  Through the efforts of education and increased awareness surrounding nutrition and physical activity, families will be given the tools and motivation to create a healthful environment for their loved ones. 

This is where faith-based and community groups can really have an impact.  By offering families the information, resources, and support they need, real changes can be made on the local level.  To get involved or learn more about the Let’s Move! campaign, visit their website today, and help us make strides towards better nutrition and healthful living in your community.
