Every day through the media of radio, TV, internet,
and newsprint, we are informed or misinformed about the topic of nutrition. The American Dietetic Association recognizes March as National Nutrition Month. The focus of this year’s campaign is “Eat Right with Color,” emphasizing the importance of making informed choices and developing good eating and physical activity habits. At a time when childhood obesity is reaching epidemic proportions and numerous health conditions affecting adults can be directly correlated with the life style choices and the foods we eat, it is important to gather our information from the experts in the fi eld of nutrition. One category of professionals who are the nation’s food and nutrition experts is the Registered Dietitian, committed to improving the health of people of all ages.
In collaboration with National Nutrition Month, March
Barbara Ford Owner
Are you tired of constantly hearing about jobs and production being outsourced? If given the choice, would you rather support the workmanship of Connecticut craftsmen and small businesses? If so, consider yourself a kindred spirit to CONNfetti founder and owner, Barbara Ford. A lifelong resident of the state and former healthcare worker, Barbara decided to put this philosophy to the test by opening CONNfetti, a unique gift shop filled with items produced here or inspired by the State of Connecticut. As she continues to scour the countryside, Barbara has located more and more distinctive items made by small businesses throughout the state. The products and workmanship are all first rate, and the prices are quite reasonable, with most items in stock under $25, and some even under $10. The inventory continues to expand as she discovers more craftsmen and small businesses that often remain unknown outside their own communities. It’s time to expand your horizons and find out a little more about
what’s being produced in your state. It’s time to visit CONNfetti, located at 13 Golden Street (right around the corner from the Hygienic) in New London’s Historic Waterfront District. Just steps away from the free Municipal Parking Lot. Spend the day in the District and enjoy the many fine restaurants and shops nearby. Call Barbara at 860.442.0122. www.connfettigifts.com
Come Celebrate Connecticut with Us!
9th will recognize the fourth Annual Registered Dietitian Day. TVCCA would like to thank and recognize all of the Registered Dietitians working in Southeastern Connecticut for their continued commitment to improve the health and nutrition of our community. TVCCA is fortunate to have several dietitians on
staff working with the community nutrition programs administered by the agency. On a daily basis, the dietitians, supported with a staff of nutritionists and dietetic technicians, can be seen counseling pregnant and breastfeeding women, meeting with parents of young children, teaching nutrition classes to inquisitive preschool children, conducting nutrition education at the local senior centers throughout the county and making visits to the homebound elderly. The dietitians work with the nutrition staff in our Central Kitchen facility on menu development for the Senior Nutrition Program, also known as Meals on Wheels, and our Early Childhood Development programs, Head Start and Little Learners. During this past year TVCCA provided 170,000 meals for 1600 preschool children and 415,725 meals to 3636 Meals on Wheels clients and to the Senior Centers throughout New London County. Since 1975 TVCCA has been providing the Meals on Wheels program to senior citizens who are homebound and unable to cook for themselves. Please join TVCCA at Ocean Beach on April 2 for the Meal on Wheels Carnevale.
Yours in health,
Deborah Monahan, Executive Director Thames Valley Council for Community Action

Women in Biz “Weight” NO Longer To Shed Pounds
Jane Buglione MSN, RN, brings over 25 years of nursing to her business “Weight” NO Longer, LLC, Niantic. Utilizing the Ideal Protein medically-designed weight-loss protocol, Jane’s clients lose 3-7 pounds of fat per week while maintaining lean muscle mass, the calorie burning engine. By eating a low carbohydrate diet, combined with highly absorbable protein, the body is forced to use fat stores for energy consumption. Jane battled with being overweight for several years. In addition, she watched both of her parents have open heart surgery in their early 60’s because of obesity related diseases. Knowing that she was genetically at risk for obesity and its complications, she took control and started the Ideal Protein protocol to lose weight and improve her health. “I eat this way every day,” says Jane. “It works!” Jane is proof that Ideal Protein helps you achieve your weight loss goals. She tried every diet, losing weight and gaining it back – until Ideal Protein. Other diets fail because you lose fat as well as muscle, thereby decreasing your metabolic rate. When you start eating normally again, you gain back the lost weight and even more. At “Weight” NO Longer, Jane teaches you how to lose weight AND how to maintain it – for life... Your last diet! Jane, who specializes in Adolescent Obesity, will give you valuable nutritional information to ensure you keep the pounds off and enjoy the renewed skin, body shape, health and energy level you deserve. Call Jane at 860.739.0471 to set up your one-on-one consultation or join her for a FREE seminar on March 15th or April 12th at 7pm. Come to “Weight” NO Longer and find a Healthier and Happier you!
