National Nutrition Month - Resources on Eating for Prevention & Wellness

Healthy Diet for Prevention and Wellness - National Nutrition MonthMarch is National Nutrition Month®, a nutrition education and information campaign sponsored annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, a nonprofit organization.

According to the Academy, “The campaign is designed to focus attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.”

As part of National Nutrition Month this year, many government, nonprofit, and private sector sources are focusing attention on good nutrition as a means to prevent illness and promote wellness and good health. Good nutrition, along with exercise, has been referred to by noted medical authorities as the “best medicine” for prevention and wellness.

Under the theme “Get your Plate in Shape,” the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is providing a Nutrition Education Resource page as part of National Nutrition Month this year. On it are links to multiple articles and fact sheets provided by the Academy on healthy eating and recipes, as well as links to other food and nutrition resources. Here are some additional resources:
