National Nutrition Month

National Nutrition Month is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. Registered Dietitian Day, also celebrated in March, increases awareness of registered dietitians as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services and recognizes registered dietitians for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives.

The 2017 National Nutrition Month theme is “Put Your Best Fork Forward.” Please visit the weekly registered dietitian table near the cafeteria to learn about topics such as adding fruits, vegetables, fish and whole grains to your diet, as well as tips for reducing sugar consumption. There will be handouts, spin-the-wheel games and free healthy snacks. Please stop by!

When: Tuesday, March 7, from noon to 1 p.m.
Where: Building C, Floor G, outside of Windows Café
