March is National Nutrition Month

National Nutrition Month is an annual nutrition education and information campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign, celebrated each year during the month of March, focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

“National Nutrition Week,” initiated in March 1973, was embraced by members of the American Dietetic Association (now the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics) to deliver nutrition education messages to the public while promoting the profession of dietetics. In 1980, in response to growing public interest in nutrition, the week-long celebration expanded to become a month-long observance.

Be sure to visit the Academy’s National Nutrition Month® website in the upcoming weeks for new and updated resources to help make your National Nutrition Month celebration an infinite success!
