National Nutrition Month® is an educational campaign organized annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.
The theme for this year’s National Nutrition Month® is “Put Your Best Fork Forward,” which reminds us that each bite counts. The more variety of healthful foods you have in your diet, the broader spectrum of nutrients you will provide your body. Making small positive changes in your food selections can add up over time, which can cumulatively represent significant positive lifestyle changes.
“Put Your Best Fork Forward” serves as a reminder that each one of us holds the tool to make healthier food choices. Parents are the most important role models for their children. Developing a healthy eating lifestyle for you and your family can help improve health now and into the future.
