Put Your Best "Fork" Forward During National Nutrition Month
What is National Nutrition Month? In 1973, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics developed an information campaign, focusing on the importance of making sound nutrition choices. What started as a week quickly grew to a month long focus of National Nutrition Month. Each year, a theme or slogan highlights the month helping consumers understand ways nutrition improves their health.
The 2017 theme, “Put Your Best Fork Forward ”, focuses on making small changes, one forkful at a time, when added up can create a lifelong change for health. It empowering individuals to make healthier food choices in order to achieve a healthier eating style not just for the month, but for the year and throughout one’s lifetime.
