This month is dedicated to healthy eating and being physically active to promote overall body health and wellbeing. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics sponsors this campaign and is dedicated to providing the education and information associated with making informed decisions about food and physical activity. National Nutrition Month originated in 1973 when it used to only be recognized as a weeklong celebration. Due to the popularity and awareness of nutrition, the weeklong event was changed to a monthlong holiday in 1980.
For handouts, tip sheets, information, games, coloring pages, and more, please visit Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Nutrition Education Resources.
