February Nutrition Focus:  Heart Health

We all associate February with Valentine’s Day, but did you know that this month is known for being “Heart month” for other reasons? 


Back in 1963, Congress required the president to proclaim February as “American Hearth Month” in an effort to raise awareness about one of the leading causes of death – Heart disease.  Some of the best weapons against heart disease risk include knowing your family health history, understanding warning signs, and striving to meet the American Dietary Guidelines for nutrition and physical activity requirements.  Although the risk of heart disease in children is relatively low, research shows that controlling as many of the following risk factors as possible, starting in childhood, will help reduce your child's risk of developing heart disease as an adult.
