National Nutrition Month is an annual nutrition education and information campaign, which focuses on making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. This month also celebrates my profession, which makes it a welcomed break from the holidays that encourage gluttony.
This year’s NNM theme “Eat Right,
Your Way, Every Day,” supports personalized healthy eating styles and
acknowledges that food preferences, lifestyles, and health concerns
along with cultural and ethnic backgrounds all have a great impact on
our individual food choices. As RD's, we want to inspire you this month to simply make a small change every
day that works for you. Make it personal and make it better. General nutrition wisdom should come into play – concepts of balance,
moderation, making sure you get adequate nutrition from a variety of
foods and aiming for a healthy lifestyle rather alternating perfect days and cheat days.
Make this month count by vowing to try new things, get active, and share your ideas with friends & family.
