National Nutrition Month and Beyond
Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle

Throughout the month of March we celebrated National Nutrition Month® (NNM), a nutrition education and information campaign created annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (Academy). The campaign focused  attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. The March 2015 theme for National Nutrition Month® is “Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle.” 

The theme encourages everyone to explore new foods and flavors, keeping taste and nutrition on your plate at every meal. During the month of March, we looked at the many foods and combinations that contribute to "Biting into a Healthy Lifestyle" I hope you will take the information presented and use it year round.
