CHPP Nutrition Program Overview – For Your Health Series
There is an abundance of nutritional information that has been presented throughout the various media outlets, social media, television and radio talk shows, which has caused confusion to many. What should you eat? Should you or shouldn’t you eat eggs, dairy, beef, poultry and/or fish? When and how often should you eat? Can you live on vegetables or fruit only? What are the nutritional needs of infants, children, teens, young adults, middle-aged adults, senior citizens? Do you eat to live or live to eat? Why? So many changing points of view creates more questions…
Whatever you ingest will affect how you feel, think and function. Lower-income communities are more deeply affected by poor access to a good quality, healthy food supply within the communities in which they live work.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, within the black and brown communities, morbidity and mortality rates are higher than other ethnicities which Crenshaw Health Partners is focused to decrease through our efforts to promote health and improve health literacy. We believe that if you know better, and you’re serious about improving the way that you feel, you’ll do better.
