March is Nutrition Month Keep energized by having regular meals or snacks every 3-4 hours. Keep healthy snack and meal choices handy at work, in the car and at home to avoid settling for something less nutritious. Drink plenty of fluids including water throughout the day. Canadian adults do not get enough fiber. Women should aim for about 25 grams of fiber per day while men should aim for approximately 38 grams per day. Achieve this by eating plenty of plant foods - 5 or more servings of whole-grain products and 5 or more servings of vegetables and fruit each day.
