March into Spring with National Nutrition Month ®
Now's the time to spring into action and tune-up your eating habits! There's no better month than National Nutrition Month ® (March) to jump-start your plans for trying new foods and new physical activities. National Nutrition Month ®, created in 1973 by the American Dietetic Association, promotes healthful eating by providing practical nutrition guidance and focusing attention on making informed food choices and developing sound physical activity habits.
Consulting with a Registered Dietician (RD) can also help you answer more complex nutrition questions. It can be difficult to navigate through the facts and fiction and RDs can answer questions like, “are fresh fruits and vegetables healthier than frozen or canned, or does eating carbohydrates cause weight gain?” A consultation with a Registered Dietitian can debunk the myths and provide you with the latest science-based information.
