Blend Nutrition Bar is located at 109 Marine Blvd in Jacksonville, just past the bridge.

If eating healthier and improving your diet is one of your New Year’s resolutions, there are several clean/healthy eating options in Onslow County ranging from vegan and vegetarian and those for meat and carb lovers. 

There are also places equipped with healthy eating tips which can put you on the right path. 

Onslow County Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Nutrition Program Director Aisha Ford said one of the best ways to start improving your nutrition in the New Year is to start making family meal time a priority. 

“A lot of times there’s a lot of distractions and we’re on the go and busy,” said Ford. “We don’t make our meal time a big priority so we end up picking things that aren’t the healthiest options. With making the family meal a priority, you’ll have improved nutrition. We’re actually preparing this meal, sitting down together, making our plates, and everybody’s sitting, eating, and setting aside time to do that.”
