By President Donna Orrico
March 8, 2018

The Bedford Fire Department members are wearing green and posing with our basket of fruit to remind everyone that March is National Nutrition Month. One of the components to a long healthy life is eating healthy.

The USDA has strategies to help you become a better eater!
1. Start with small changes.
2. Take one day at a time.
3. Be active your way.
4. Team up.
5. Celebrate success!

According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, "unhealthy diet contributes to approximately 678,000 deaths each year in the U.S., due to nutrition- and obesity-related diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes".

Small steps can lead to big successes!
