We held a Healthy Tips sweepstakes in honor of National Nutrition Month, to bring attention to making more informed food choices and habits this March. A Place for Mom readers shared with us how they practiced staying healthy, and we listened to them. Now, as promised, we’re sharing their top 50 nutrition tips with you.

A Place for Mom received great health tips from our readers through our sweepstakes, where we offered a chance to win a $25 cash gift card for their stories on how they stayed fit.

Congratulations to Natalie Y., who advises us to “Exercise daily” and who is the winner of our contest! Although not everyone could win a grand prize, the responses were so great that we had to share the top nutrition tips with you.
