Welcome to National Nutrition Month® 2019!

National Nutrition Month Calendar 2019

National Nutrition Month® is an annual nutrition education and information campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign, celebrated each year during the month of March, focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

To help celebrate, recognize, and learn from the experts who contribute to the industry, we invite you to participate in daily activities for the entire month of March!

National Nutrition Month® 2019

Each year, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics anchors the month of March around a singular theme to showcase the trends in modern nutrition practice and the nutrition experts helping drive these developments.

In an effort to accommodate the diverse areas in which National Nutrition Month® is celebrated and allow greater flexibility in the promotion of healthful messages, this year National Nutrition Month® will be honored as its own theme. As a result, participants are able to reach closer at accomplishing the overall mission of achieving a healthier world through the transformative power of food and nutrition.

Growing from a week-long celebration to an entire month, 2019 marks the 46th year the celebration has been embraced. Join UNE Online, authorities in nutrition and professionals like you to continue the celebration of delivering powerful, informative messages to live healthier!

“National Nutrition Month® provides a great opportunity to focus on the importance of nutrition and nutrition professionals. National Nutrition Month® offers a chance to reflect on the impacts food choice, food habits and behaviors, and physical activity habits have, and identify ways to improve these choices and habits to improve our health! Don’t forget to celebrate nutrition professionals on March 13th, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) Day by thanking the RD’s and NDTR’s in your community!”

Ellie Dodge, Ph.D., Director of Graduate Programs in Applied Nutrition
