March is National Nutrition Month, and this year’s theme is “Put Your Best Fork Forward.” Each day provides a fresh opportunity to make smart food choices for better health and every small step — or forkful — made toward eating well counts.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics first celebrated National Nutrition Month (NNM) in 1980 to encourage healthier eating practices. Today, the public is more knowledgeable about food and nutrition than ever before. In fact, we are often inundated with an overwhelming amount of information and resources about what to eat. We can embrace the theme of NNM this year by getting back to basics and make simple steps to eat better that are proven by science.
