National Nutrition Month®

March 1, 2018

National Nutrition Month


National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and celebrated annually in March. The campaign focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. In addition, National Nutrition Month® 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.  This year's theme is "Go Further with Food," a reminder to eat healthfully for ongoing energy and plan meals and snacks in advance to help reduce food loss and waste.
