October – Dietitian’s Healthy Pick of the Month!

Dietitians Health Pick of the Month – Apples!

As part of our Enhanced Dining Services, our dietitian picks a different food each month to be incorporated into resident meals, and each facility provides a display to educate residents, family and staff.

This month is Apples – 2500 varieties of apples are grown in the United States and 7500 varieties throughout the world. Archeologists have found evidence that humans have been enjoying apples since at least 6500 B.C. Apples are fat, sodium, and cholesterol free and are a great source of fiber with one apple containing five grams of fiber. Click for more History Facts and Nutritional Facts
