a Publication for members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics
National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign sponsored annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign is designed to focus attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. NNM also promotes the Academy and its members to the public and the media as the most valuable and credible source of timely, scientifically based food and nutrition information.
Event Ideas to Involve a Grocery Store or Supermarket
Grocery Store or Supermarket
- Work with a local grocery store to promote NNM with posters and handouts.
- Conduct supermarket tours to provide label reading opportunities and information about healthy food choices. Offer a special tour for kids focused on selecting healthy snacks. Provide "25 Healthy Snacks for Kids" NNM brochures and copies of selected NNM activity sheets.
- Set up a "nutrition station" staffed by registered dietitians who answer questions on nutrition.
- Ask local store manager to run NNM audio PSAs in the store during March. (Coming soon!)
