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.
“Go Further with Food“is the theme for 2018, and its importance is timely for many reasons. Whether it’s starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast or fueling before an athletic event, the foods you choose can make a real difference. Preparing your foods to go further, by planning meals and snacks in advance can also help to reduce food loss and waste. This year’s theme for National Nutrition Month® encourages us to achieve the numerous benefits healthy eating habits offer, but it also urges us to find ways to cut back on food waste. Learning how to manage food resources at home will help you “Go Further with Food“, while saving both nutrients and money.
Healthy eating is important no matter how old you are. This National Nutrition Month®, MyPlate is here to help you “spring” into the new season with a variety of tools and resources to help you find a healthy eating style that works for you at any age. Whether you need to find a MyPlate plan that fits your needs or just need some tips to help you on your healthy eating journey, ChooseMyPlate.gov is here to help.
