National Nutrition Month® is an established annual initiative inaugurated in 1973 by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Throughout the month of March, we extend an invitation to all to delve into the exploration of informed food choices and the cultivation of healthful eating and physical activity habits.
This year's theme is "Beyond the Table," which addresses the farm-to-fork aspect of nutrition, from food production and distribution to navigating grocery stores and farmers markets — and even home food safety and storage practices. It also describes the various ways we eat — not only around a dinner table, but also on the go, in schools and restaurants, at games and events. This theme also includes sustainability, for instance, decreasing food waste from school and work to home and beyond.
Individual practitioners and organizations are welcome to download educational materials, public service announcements, planning resources and blogger badges for educational, non-commercial use (i.e. "fair use"). Companies seeking licensed materials for corporate clients can find promotional products and educational bundles in the National Nutrition Month® catalog.
