National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign sponsored annually by the American Dietetic Association. The campaign is designed to focus attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.
"As many people know, March is National Nutrition Month. However, we don't have to panic about making dramatic changes in our eating habits. There are four ways that you can incorporate small changes in your diet that can have big health payoffs," says Julie Upton, nationally registered dietitian and health communications expert specializing in nutrition, fitness and wellness.
