National Nutrition Month

National Nutrition Month 2022 LogoDuring the month of March, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics celebrates healthy eating through National Nutrition Month®. This year's theme, Celebrate a World of Flavors, embraces global cultures, cuisines and inclusivity. Celebrating flavors from cultures around the world is a tasty way to nourish ourselves and appreciate our diversity. We are all unique with different bodies, goals, backgrounds and tastes!

While adopting healthier habits can be a challenge, National Nutrition Month breaks it down into weekly goals that are more manageable:

Week 1: Eat a variety of nutritious foods

Week 2: See a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN)

  • Ask your doctor for a referral to an RDN to receive personalized nutrition information to meet your health goals.
  • If you are unable to meet with an RDN, there are lots of ways to get accurate nutrition information. 

Week 3: Plan your meals and snacks

Week 4: Create healthy foods at home.

  • Learn cooking and meal preparation skills.
  • Try new flavors and foods from around the world.
  • Enjoy your meals with friends or family, when possible.

Week 5: Put it all together and celebrate what you've learned!
