Join us this month as we celebrate National Nutrition Month®! National Nutrition Month® is put on by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The celebration brings important points about nutrition and the impact that it has on health to light during the month.
It also brings to mind the important role that Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) play as authorities in the field of nutrition. The information that RDNs provide is credible, timely, and scientifically-based. RDNs are committed to helping their clients enjoy living a healthy life.
While National Nutrition Week has been enacted since the early 1970s, National Nutrition Month® came in 1980 as the public’s interest grew in the field of nutrition. National Nutrition Month® helps to bring awareness to the cause.
According to their website, the Academy has a vision of “a world where all people thrive through the transformative power of food and nutrition.” Over 100,000 practitioners are credentialed and a part of the organization, helping to spread the message of good health via nutrition throughout the world, and to their clients and patients.
Our RDNs are members of the Academy and qualified and credentialed to help you achieve your health goals through nutrition and diet. In honor of NNM, RDNs recommend initiating these habits:
- When it comes to food and drinks, make good decisions for your health
- Eat a variety of foods in a variety of colors on a regular basis
- Make small, manageable changes
- Stay physically active
- Make healthful selections, especially if you do not get to eat at home
- Be aware of the sizes of portions of food you are eating
Our registered dietitian nutritionists are here for you not just during National Nutrition Month®, but all throughout the year! Whether you are looking to manage weight or improve a chronic condition, schedule a consultation with one of the registered dietitian nutritionists at The Nutrition Professionals today.
