March Newsletter is here!

March is National Nutrition Month, so it’s a great time to review your diet. We’ll provide weekly information to help you identify small changes you can make to meet your 2018 health goals. 

Choosing the right foods can affect your health. Sounds simple, right? So why are chronic conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer on the rise? It may be because of the lack of proper nutrition. Check out the attached infographic to learn more about chronic conditions related to diet.

Try this: Track your meals for a day

  • How much salt, sugar and fiber are you eating?
  • How many times per day do you eat raw fruit and vegetables?
  • How much of each meal was from a box?
  • At the end of the day, review what you ate, and choose one thing you can improve.

Making lifestyle changes can take time. Our Blue Cross® Blue Shield® of Michigan wellness coordinator recommends picking one change per week over the next month. Take a look at and to learn more. You can also email our wellness coordinator, Chris Barr, at
