National Nutrition Month®

MARCH IS NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH®. Created by The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition and education campaign focused on the importance of making healthy food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

This year’s theme, “Get Your Plate in Shape,” focuses on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein and low-fat dairy. By getting your plate in shape you can ensure that you, and your family, are eating well-rounded and healthy meals.

At Food & Friends, our Community Dietitians celebrate National Nutrition Month® with staff challenges, games and by sharing fun and healthy recipes. This year, we want you to join in the celebration. 

Try our 31 Days of Healthy Living challenge. Each Monday, we’ll post a week of tips. Can you try them all? Let us know by sharing recipes, tips of your own and stories about the healthy choices you’re making this month.
