Whether you are carrying a few extra pounds, struggling with obesity, looking for more energy or aiming to boost your overall health, everyone can benefit from a more nutritious diet. Research tells us that although this is a serious safety concern, too often healthy eating is easier said than done. This is one of the reasons why the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is raising awareness about the importance of informed food choices and sound eating habits.
The Academy created National Nutrition Month to advance nutritional health for all Americans in March 1973, and the organization has led the charge every March since. This is for good reason. Nutrition remains a major public health and safety concern. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:
This year the National Nutrition Month theme is “Eat Right, Bite by Bite.” The idea is that small, consistent dietary changes can create a cumulative health effect where every little bit of nutrition adds up to a healthier diet and lifestyle. Each week of the month shares a different, important focus, as shown below.
The Academy is the world’s largest organization of food and nutrition professionals, and the majority of its members are RDNs and nutrition and dietetics technicians. Campaign organizers assert that healthy foods do not have to be restrictive or overwhelming. A detailed tip sheet provides additional guidance as you plan forward to learn more.
