March is National Nutrition Month® + Free Cookbook
According to Feeding America, it’s estimated that 1 in 6 people are experiencing food insecurity, an issue that has become amplified due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As families are faced with food insecurity, making healthy choices can become more overwhelming and difficult. The American Heart Association is highlighting the community-level work addressing food insecurity and providing resources, including a free 10 Under $10 cookbook, to guide families on how to shop and eat healthy on a budget. Each entrée costs less than $2.50 per serving to prepare.
National Kidney Month
During National Kidney Month, we want to remind you about the important connection between your kidneys, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. With type 2 diabetes, your risks for developing heart disease or stroke and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are also elevated. Early detection of CKD can make a huge difference and is easily done in a doctor’s office with simple blood and urine tests. Make sure to discuss having the tests and what the results mean with your doctor at your next appointment.
