March is National Nutrition Month, a campaign of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This year’s theme is “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right”, because healthy eating doesn't mean you have to sacrifice flavor. The Alameda County Food Bank is posting recipes that are healthy and delicious and various tips on nutrition and healthy eating on its Facebook page. We have a number of recipe books for both adults and kids to encourage healthy eating habits at the library, including fun titles like "The monster health book : a guide toeating healthy, being active & feeling great for monsters & kids" and "Healthy Snacks on My Plate" and many more. You can also ask any librarian for recommendations.
All Oakland Public Library locations will be closed on Monday, May 28th in observance of Memorial Day. All branch libraries, except Eastmont and Brookfield Branch, will also be closed Tuesday, May 29th
