WEEKLY NUTRITION and FITNESS TIPS
BASD Health Matters Monthly #1
The Bethlehem Area School District prides itself on its health services department and the staff that supports it. Each month, we will give you some quick tips from our knowledgeable employees and partners.
Healthy Tips from Michelle Martucci, RD, LDN
Dietitian for Bethlehem Area School District
The ABC Tips - P:
• Potatoes: Potatoes have been scrutinized for being unhealthy and categorized with white rice and white pasta due to it containing a high amount of carbohydrates. However, potatoes contain a lot more nutrients than white rice and pasta. Potatoes contains antioxidants, have no fat, is low in sodium, and high in potassium. Potatoes are also a good source of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, folate, beta carotene, and iron. Try topping your baked potatoes off with other superfoods such as beans, spinach, or even a fried egg.
Pumpkin contains beta-carotene that is converted to vitamin A when digested in the body. The beta-carotene is known to help boost your immune system, prevent coronary artery disease, and is important for maintaining good eye health. Either using fresh or canned pumpkin is beneficial to your health. Pumpkin seeds have as many nutrition benefits as the flesh of the pumpkin. The seeds are packed with protein, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. Try making pumpkin soup and add roasted pumpkin seeds as a topping.
