National Nutrition Month Posters and Table Tents

Avocados contain heart healthy monosaturated fat. Remember, avocados are good for your heart, but can be hard on your waistline, so use them sparingly.

Garlic contains a plant chemical called allicin that can potentially reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers. Garlic is most beneficial when raw or just slightly cooked.

Tomatoes contain a plant chemical called lycopene that may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers. Levels of lycopene are highest in cooked tomato products like spaghetti and tomato sauces.

Tea contains plant chemicals called flavonoids which can be linked to decreased risk of heart disease and may inhibit cancer cell growth.

Asparagus is rich in folate which can help lower homocysteine levels, a compound linked to heart disease.

Sweet potatoes are rich in antioxidants and may slow the aging process and reduce the risk of cancers.

Oranges contain a plant chemical called limonene that may reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.

Berries contain a plant chemical called ellagic acid that can potentially reduce the risk of cancer.

It was logical to place these table tents in the hospital cafeteria. Where better to promote nutrition than at the tables on which people were to eat?
