National Nutrition Month: How Did It Start?

Happy National Nutrition Month 2015!

How did National Nutrition Month start? The beginnings started with a National Nutrition Week in 1973 with the first presidential proclamation, news releases, television public service announcement (PSA), and radio PSA. The first theme was "Invest in Yourself - Buy Nutrition." In 1980, National Nutrition Week was change to National Nutrition Month. This year's them for National Nutrition Month is 'bite into a healthy lifestyle;' it promotes good health through healthy eating. If you missed anything from last week, check out the blog to be encouraged to eat breakfast, be physically active, and eat more fruits and veggies.

This week we will focus on what dietitians do. Stay tuned to find out what registered dietitians (RD) or registered dietitian nutritionists (RDN) do, where RDs work, and how you can find a RD near you.
