National Nutrition Month

National Nutrition Month

“Put Your Best Fork Forward” even small changes in food choices can have positive, lasting effects over time.

Did you know March is National Nutrition Month? The intent of National Nutrition Month is to educate and inform consumers of the importance of making healthy and informed food choices as well as developing good physical activity habits.

The 2017 theme for National Nutrition Month is, “Put Your Best Fork Forward”. The idea being to remind people to make each bit count, even small changes in the choices of foods we eat can have positive, lasting effects over time. If these changes are implemented “one forkful at a time” they will help instill healthy eating habits in all.
