Time to put on your party hats because March is National Nutrition Month and we’re going to celebrate around here!
What is National Nutrition Month? Here’s a brief explanation straight from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Website:
National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, formerly the American Dietetic Association. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, also celebrated in March, increases awareness of registered dietitian nutritionists as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services and recognizes RDNs for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives.
The theme this year is “Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle” which fits right into my views about health and wellness (which I talked about a little bit in my New Year’s post and also my post about a healthy yet balanced diet). You can check out all of my nutrition-related posts here or at the tab at the top of the page.
Here are 5 ideas of ways you can celebrate National Nutrition Month:
- Set both a new sound eating and physical activity goal to focus on during the month of March.
- Find a new, healthy recipe each week to make at home
- Set a steps goal with your Fitbit or other fitness tracker
- Make half of your grain intake whole grains
