In March 1973, the American Dietetic Association, now Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), initiated National Nutrition Week. With growing interest in nutrition, the Academy changed the recognition in 1980 to National Nutrition Month (NNM). The 2014 theme is “Enjoy the Taste of Eating Right.”

NNM focuses on helping consumers to make informed food choices and to develop sound eating strategies. Each day we naturally think of eating. While everyone needs nourishment, many fail to consider the foods they consume. Healthy foods can and do taste good and can become a natural part of your lifestyle. To find help to make wiser choices, seek out registered/licensed members of AND.

Today, March 12, 2014, is Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN) Day. The RDN provides sound, credible advice on food and nutrition. These uniquely trained food experts translate nutritional science into practical guidelines for healthy eating. They can help you maintain good health or to improve and control disease conditions influenced or caused by food-related choices.

Take a few moments to reflect on what you eat. What you choose can make a difference. During this National Nutrition Month, make the 2014 theme your goal. Celebrate the good taste of healthful eating.
