March is National Nutrition Month, a nutrition education and information campaign created annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits — and for this year, the campaign theme is “Go Further with Food.”
Whether it’s starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast or fueling before an athletic event, the foods you choose can make a difference to your health and the planet’s health.
Later in the month (on March 14), we will celebrate National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, which is meant to increase awareness of RDNs as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services. Here at SNP, we recognize and appreciate the commitment that RDNs make to help people enjoy healthy, balanced lifestyles.
As you celebrate with seafood this month (and all year long), be sure to thank a dietitian for helping make us all healthier and consider taking the pledge to eat #Seafood2xWk.
Eating seafood regularly can save lives and significantly improve overall health. Consuming two servings each week, as recommended by leading health organizations – including the American Heart Association and World Health Organization – is an easy way to make a positive commitment to your health and the health of those around you.
