Fun, Food, and Fitness

Welcome to National Nutrition Month! While it is easy to think only about food choices this month, the creators of this awareness month also want to highlight the importance of physical activity. Movement matters, too. Whether you are already choosing healthy food and lifestyle habits or need a little help, we’re here to provide support.

Dr. Brandon A. Macy at Clark Podiatry Center treats patients with diabetes, and he knows the importance of making sure food choices don’t have negative consequences. He also treats patients who manage foot and ankle conditions that may hold them back from their favorite activities. A podiatrist specializes in treating these conditions, from ankle sprains to painful bunions. Have you thought of connecting with our office?

Focusing on fun, food, and fitness, here are three ways to celebrate National Nutrition Month:

Get the whole family involved

If you’re trying to figure out healthy meals or creative ways to increase physical activity, start a poll! Ask your family about their favorite activity. Did you know dancing counts, too? From a trip to an indoor swimming pool to a family race around the track, tackle healthy choices together. Why begin a new adventure alone?

Try a new healthy food

Who doesn’t love a challenge? Check out dragon fruit with your family. Try a new vegetable or cook it differently. Explore creative ways to incorporate fruits and veggies into a smoothie or oatmeal. Push yourself to pursue tasty, new, and healthy food. You can do it!

Watch your steps

Movement is so important! You don’t have to have a fancy tool to track your steps every day. There are ways to feel productive and get your steps on Monday through Sunday. Choose the stairs instead of the elevator. Park your car a little further away from your favorite store.

During National Nutrition Month, we hope our tips encourage you to lead a healthier lifestyle. Here’s a quick recap: get the whole family involved with your new, healthy routine; try new food, and find ways to take more steps. We’re here to help.
