March 1, 2021 All day
National Nutrition Month in the USA is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.
The campaign has actually been around for a long time, first starting as an awareness week in 1973 becoming an awareness month in 1980, such was the interest and support.
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, also celebrated in March, increases awareness of registered dietitian nutritionists as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services and recognizes RDNs for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives.
