National Nutrition Month is an education and information campaign launched annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. It focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing good eating and activity habits.
Julie Hovencamp, Registered Dietitian at St. Joseph Hospital’s Diabetes and Nutrition Center, consistently encourages people to “Go Further with Food” by making eating more fun! She suggests trying a variety of foods while building a rainbow of color on your plate, experimenting with new recipes, enjoying all food in moderation and striving to be active every day.
She recommends these helpful online resources:
- Eat Right – Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics – www.eatright.org
- Nutrition 411 – www.nutrition411.com
- Food and Health Communications – https://foodandhealth.com/nutrition-month-are-you-ready/
