National Nutrition Month

PUT YOUR BEST FORK FORWARD! MARCH is National Nutrition Month

 

March is National Nutrition Month, when the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics reminds everyone to return to the basics of healthy eating. It is also the time of year when the Academy celebrates expertise of registered dietitian nutritionists as the food and nutrition experts.

National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and 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 the most valuable and credible source of timely, scientifically-based food and nutrition information. And do they ever know their stuff!!

“Put Your Best Fork Forward” is the theme for NNM 2017 which serves as a reminder that each one of us holds the tool to make healthier food choices. Making small changes during National Nutrition Month® and over time, helps improve health now and into the future. As nutrition experts, Academy members can help guide the public on gradually shifting toward healthier eating styles by promoting NNM activities and messages during March.

We at Clearwater Medical Clinic want to encourage you to visit the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics website for amazing information, smart suggestions for food choices depending on whatever lifestyle challenges you are faced with, and living the total body diet lifestyle: http://www.eatright.org/resource/food/resources/national-nutrition-month/national-nutrition-month
