GETTING HEALTHY WITH OUR NEIGHBORS
Making even small changes to your diet can lead to better health. Eating a nutritious diet protects us from getting sick, having heart problems, helps prevent some cancers, gives us energy throughout the day, and leads to longer lifespans. Other benefits are supporting muscles, boosts immunity, strengthens bones, helps achieve and maintain a healthy weight, helps the digestive system functions, and supports healthy pregnancies and breastfeeding.
This message is brought to you by the North End Wellness Coalition, a consortium of local organizations that work to promote the health and wellness of the community so that everyone can thrive.
