July is Nutrition Month

The objectives of this year's celebration are to:

a) increase vegetable consumption as part of a healthy diet to address micronutrient deficiencies and non-communicable diseases; 
b) promote vegetable gardening as a source of additional food and income; and 
c) increase demand for vegetables to help local vegetable farmers.
