Celebrate With Us!

Savor the flavor of eating right!

 What is National Nutrition Month®?

Every year in March, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics creates a nutrition education and information campaign to promote the importance of making informed food choices and creating healthy eating and exercise habits.

 What is the 2016 theme and what does it mean?

“Savor the Flavor of Eating Right.” It means to take time to enjoy food and appreciate the pleasures, flavors, and social experiences that food can add to our lives.
