March is National Nutrition Month! The theme for 2012 is Get Your Plate in Shape. Links from the Eat Right website include The Good Nutrition Reading List, Games & Quizzes, & Nutrition Education Resources.
At ABC Libraries, we believe in good nutrition...a healthy body is the foundation for a healthy mind! Our catalog certainly boasts a diverse array of nutrition topics. A subject search under "Nutrition" reveals headings such as "Nutrition - Athletes", "Nutrition - Businesspeople", "Nutrition - Childrens Films", "Nutrition - Infants", & "Nutrition - Japan". You can browse the subject heading list, or try a keyword search, such as "nutrition pregnancy" or "nutrition weight loss", to find the nutritional guide that best suits your needs.
