National Nutrition Month 2013

National Nutrition Month 2013

March is National Nutrition Month®, a yearly event which calls attention to the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

Our theme this year is "Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day," which encourages personalized healthy eating styles and recognizes that food preferences, lifestyle, cultural and ethnic traditions and health concerns all impact individual food choices.

Registered dietitians play a critical role in helping people eat right, their way, every day. The expertise, training and credentials that back a registered dietitian make them the experts in developing a personalized nutrition plan just for you or your family. When your family sees an RD, the last thing they'll get is one-size-fits-all diet advice. After learning about you or your family's health history, favorite foods, eating and exercise habits, an RD will help set goals and prioritize, putting you and your family on the path to lowering weight, eating healthfully and reducing the risk of chronic diseases.

For more information on how to celebrate National Nutrition Month, consult a registered dietitian in your area and visit our National Nutrition Month section.
