Celebrating National Nutrition Month

Dan This Land of Ours

celebratingWe are celebrating good health with Cathy Isom telling you why this is the month to be on a mission with your nutrition. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.

Every year the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics designates March as National Nutrition Month®. It’s a way to inform and educate the public on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. This year’s theme for National Nutrition Month® is “Go Further with Food.”

Whether it’s starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast or fueling before an athletic event, the foods you choose can make a difference. Preparing foods to go further at home and within the community can have a positive impact, as well. As nutrition experts, Academy members can help people adopt healthier eating styles, while reducing food loss and waste. So make March your month to be on a mission for nutrition.
