National Nutrition Month: Are You Ready?

February 25th, 2020


National Nutrition Month starts next week! Are you ready to Eat Right, Bite by Bite?

From the Academy: This year’s theme — Eat Right, Bite by Bite — supports the philosophy that every little bit (or bite!) of nutrition is a step in the right direction. Small goals and changes can have a cumulative healthful effect, and nutrition doesn’t have to be overwhelming!

For each week of National Nutrition Month, the focus will be on a different key message that you can share with your patients or clients. The 4 key messages are:

For each week, there are 5 tips to support each key message to help your clients get started! The Academy has provided a ton of great resources including tip sheets and handouts, games, planning materials, and press releases! They also have Spanish tip sheets.

What are you doing to promote this year’s campaign? The Academy has created a list of some fun ideas including: 

  • Arrange a cooking demo
  • Start a month-long nutrition/wellness challenge at work or with your clients
  • Organize a food donation campaign for a local food pantry or shelter
  • Volunteer your time—teach a nutrition class to members of your community
