In the News!

February is National Canned Food Month

In celebration of National Canned Food Month, the Network for Healthy California encourages you to reach your recommended daily amount of 3½ to 6½ cups through canned options. Canned fruits & vegetables are a great alternative to fresh produce.

Some tips when shopping are:

  1. Look for canned fruits that are packed in water or 100% fruit juice.
  2. Avoid fruits that are packed in syrup
  3. Make sure canned vegetables are low-sodium or have no added salt
