March 8, International Women's Day - Nutrition Advocacy

"Each year around the world, International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Organisations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women's groups, corporations and the media celebrate the day. Many groups around the world choose different themes each year relevant to global and local gender issues.

The 2013 theme is the "GENDER AGENDA: GAINING MOMENTUM." Over time and distance, the equal rights of women have progressed. Celebrate the achievements of women while remaining vigilant and tenacious for further sustainable change. There is global momentum for championing women's equality."

National Nutrition Month,
“Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day”

I enjoy playing with words and seeing if I can come up with a meaningful world that goes with the National Nutrition Month® Theme, “Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day.”

With some juggling and creativity, here is what I came up with.

National Nutrition Month® (NNM) is more than a game; it is a "nutrition education and information campaign created annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (Academy). The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits."

Your Way, Every Day" Mean? News
