March is National Nutrition Month, a nutrition and education campaign created by the Academy for Nutrition and Dietetics. This campaign aims to bring awareness on the importance of healthy eating practices. Every March, the Academy for Nutrition and Dietetics launches the campaign offering free tips and promotional items to help spread the word.
Each March, when the campaign begins, it is paired with a theme that will set the stage for what the academy is trying to promote that particular year. This year the chosen theme is Go Further With Food. The theme aims to educate the public on healthful eating practices throughout their day. Whether it be starting the day with a nutritious breakfast, or fueling up for a specific sporting event, eating the right foods will give you the optimal energy to take on whatever your day brings.
All March long here at SUNY Oswego, we will be celebrating National Nutrition Month! The campus’ registered dietitian and her interns will be in various dining halls throughout the month where you can come up to our table and ask questions, play games, win prizes, and try new foods! We hope to see you there!
