22 Mar March is National Nutrition Month
St. Johnland Nursing Center is recognizing National Nutrition Month throughout March. The month long campaign supported by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is about educating and encouraging individuals to make informed food choices to maintain a healthy diet.
To celebrate, Chef Frank, Executive Chef at SJNC, along with several members of the Dietary staff have cooking demonstrations and various activities planned for St. Johnland residents to participate in and enjoy over the upcoming weeks. Events include a nutrition trivia game, a “Guess the Grain” contest as well as several opportunities to sample nutritious snacks.
A recent highlight, as seen in the photos below, Chef Frank created a make shift kitchen area in the Resident Dining Hall to demonstrate the preparation of a healthy Pesto Pasta which everyone happily enjoyed a tasting afterwards!
