Memphis Celebrates National Eating Healthy Day

by Garcia 1. on Wednesday, November 6, 2013

The American Heart Association observed National Eating Healthy Day on November 6 and Shelby County Mayor, Mark H. Lattrell Jr., helped raise awareness about the need to make healthy eating choices.  The Mayor issued a proclamation urging all citizens to improve nutrition and healthy eating both at home and in the work place to prevent heart disease and stroke.  The Mayor was part of a press conference which was followed by staff and volunteers distributing apples in downtown Memphis. The 'random act of nutrition' was a way to encourage healthy eating and raise awareness in the community.  The American Heart Association encourages healthy eating everyday not just on National Eating Healthy Day.  Be sure to check out these helpful tips your family can use to make smart choices about the food you eat.
