March is National Nutrition Month
Every March, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics encourages Americans to return to the basics of healthy eating through National Nutrition Month. This year RDN (Registered Dietitian Nutritionist) Day is on March 14th. RDN day was created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to increase the awareness of registered dietitian nutritionists as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services and to recognize RDNs for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives. RDNs are the most valuable and credible source of timely, scientifically-based food and nutrition information.
This year’s theme is “Go Further with Food”.
The theme encourages us to achieve the numerous benefits of healthy eating, but it also urges us to pre-plan meals/snacks and cut back on food waste. Learning how to manage food resources at home will help you “Go Further with Food”, while adding nutrients, reducing food waste and saving money.
Join us in celebrating National Nutrition Month in March. We will have a display in the waiting room with nutrition info, games, recipes and more.
