Help is on the way!

So, our spring semester is well underway and my college students are beginning to analyze their diets; they are using “Super Tracker” software on a government website, choosemyplate.gov.

The day I’m grading the first part of their assignment, I get an email stating Super Tracker will no longer be available after July 1st. Bummer. It’s “free” (thank you for your tax dollars), simple and straightforward.

On the same day, I get an email from  Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Maureen Bligh, who says take a look at this meal planner the Dairy Council of California has on line. A solution was handed to me before I even formed the question – what will I have my students use in the future?

YOU absolutely have to click on this link https://healthyeating.org/Healthy-Eating/Healthy-Eating-Tools/Healthy-Eating-Planner and answer the questions “Assessing My Habits” even if you don’t intend to do anything else on the site. The seven questions tell you everything you need to know about healthy or not-so-healthy lifestyles.

It will take one minute of your time and be SO WORTHWHILE.

As Nike would say Just Do It to be well,
