CORVALLIS, Ore. - Oregon State University's Nutrition and Dietetics Club is celebrating National Nutrition Month this March with a two-day event in the Memorial Union Quad.
This year's theme of "Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day" encourages personalized healthy eating styles that include lifestyle and cultural and ethnic traditions when creating balanced meals.
OSU's Nutrition and Dietetics Club is teaming up with Be Well on March 5-6, 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for the two-day event, which will feature games, prizes, free food, and tips on how to stay healthy from guests representing Bob's Red Mill, First Alternative Co-op, Wild Squirrel Nut Butters, and Food@OSU.
