The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) celebrates March as National Nutrition Month®, which is sponsored annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.  For this year’s theme, FDOH is encouraging Floridians to “Enjoy More Fruits and Vegetables.”  An easy way to build a healthy plate is to make half your plate fruits and vegetables.  It is also a great way to add color, flavor, and texture plus vitamins, minerals and fiber.
