Go Folic! was recently at the Balboa High School Health and Nutrition Fair. In addition to giving out free vitamins, we served Easy Couscous, a fiber and folate-rich dish that you can make in less than 10 minutes!
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends that all women who could become pregnant get between 400-800 micrograms of folic acid daily. Go Folic! promotes the concept of healthy nutrition and the benefits of daily supplementation of folic acid while enhancing the general health and well-being of clients.
Over 2/3 of women, ages 18-24, don't get enough folic acid. If you're one of these women, it's easy to change this. All it takes is one daily multi-vitamin with 400mcg of folic acid.
We invite you to join us at Justin Herman Plaza on January 26th to celebrate the 40th anniversary of “Roe vs. Wade.” This family-friendly event, which is being organized by the Silver Ribbon Campaign, will feature a flash mob by the Bay Area chapter of Dancing Without Borders, Eve Ensler’s global initiative to end violence and sexual oppression.
