National Nutrition Month®

History of National Nutrition Month®

Since the beginning, National Nutrition Month® has been enthusiastically embraced by Academy members as an opportunity to promote the profession, as well as to serve as a vehicle for delivering nutrition education messages to the public. Through all of the changes over the years, the continuing success of National Nutrition Month® has been dependent on an essential element—members who enthusiastically plan and organize local events, both large and small, in multiple venues, for all types of audiences.
