March is National Nutrition Month!
National Nutrition Month is an annually created nutrition education and information campaign by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses on the importance of making informed food choices, developing sound eating, and physical activity habits. In addition, National Nutrition Month promotes the Academy and its members to the public and the media as most valuable and credible source of timely, scientifically-based food and nutrition information.
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, which is celebrated on the second Wednesday in March, increases awareness of registered dietitian nutritionists as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services. It also recognizes RDNs for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives.
