National Nutrition Month is designed to promote nutrition education and information. Created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating habits. For 2015, the theme is “Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle,” which encourages everyone to adopt eating and physical activity plans that are focused on consuming fewer calories, making informed food choices and getting daily exercise.
You can participate in National Nutrition Month by preparing nutritious meals for dinner and keeping healthful snacks on hand. You can also work on making every month a nutrition month by creating a nutrition plan at choosemyplate.gov.
