March is National Nutrition Month

Every March, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics encourages Americans to return to the basics of healthy eating.   This year, the Academy has announced the theme of National  Nutrition Month as “Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day”.

The theme this year encourages people to develop a healthful eating plan that incorporates their food preferences.    There is a misconception that eating healthy requires us to give up our favorite foods.  The Academy is encouraging us to make healthy choices that include our favorite foods.   Most of these foods can be included into a healthy eating plan if consumed in moderation and with appropriate portions.  The goal is to balance the foods and beverages we consume within our calorie needs. 

For more information on National Nutrition Month or other nutrition topics, visit the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics website at www.eatright.org.
