Every March, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics celebrates National Nutrition Month® to encourage healthy eating. Last year’s theme was all about savoring the flavors of nutritious foods. This year, the theme is “Put Your Best Fork Forward” to remind us that each bite counts.
The Academy offers 36 suggestions for everyone to celebrate healthier living during National Nutrition Month®. This year’s tips include eating a variety of healthy foods; cooking at home and experimenting with healthier ingredients; eating and drinking the appropriate portions; participating in enjoyable physical activities; and managing weight.
“Making just small shifts in our food choices can add up over time,” the Academy says of the theme.
