November is Nutrition 101

Our Nutrition Education theme for November is Nutrition 101: understanding the basics. We will lead topic discussions on two buzz terms, "macro" and "micro" nutrients. There are 3 major macronutrients: carbohydrate, fat, and protein. We will cover (in detail) foods that make up each category and how each group affects the body. For micronutrients, we will cover vitamins and minerals, spending time of differentiating water soluble from fat soluble vitamins and focusing on what key minerals our bodies need daily.
