balanceTwo aspects of daily food habits that create unwanted health conditions are the number of calories per meal and the balance of omega-3 and omega-6 nutrients in the foods.

On-line balance scores help you recognize the balance of omega nutrients, and Omega Meals combines your food choices to help you adjust your recipes and food plans to have a better Omega 3 – 6 balance. The benefits from doing this were discussed by Clark & Lands in 2016. They designed three menu plans that show how replacing certain food items can give a better balance of omega-3 and omega-6 nutrients. Informed food choices permit effective preventive nutrition.

War Memorial Hospital Lunch Conference – Morgan County health workers met  on March 10, 2016 for a lunch-time discussion of healthy food choices. The lunch menu was adjusted to convert a not-so-healthy combination to a healthier combination. A second meeting on March 28, 2017 continued the discussion about how easily people can NIX the 6 & EAT the 3.
