National Nutrition Month(R) is just around the corner -- are you ready for it? Check out our themed materials here, complete with handouts, coloring sheets, and theme ideas!

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, starting in 2019, March as National Nutrition Month® will be honored as its own theme. The purpose of nutrition month is to help the public become aware of the importance of good nutrition and a healthful eating plan. In years past there was a separate theme for nutrition month but going forward the theme is nutrition.

Some of the past themes before the transition to the general nutrition month as its own awareness and theme strategy were all about taste.

Here are the top 5 nutrition month themes:

  1. Go further with food (2018)
  2. Put your best fork forward (2017)
  3. Savor the flavor (2016)
  4. Bite into a healthy lifestyle (2015)
  5. Enjoy the taste of eating right (2014)

Below we have assembled relevant Nutrition Month materials that allow you to teach the importance of a nutrient-dense diet that promotes health. Individuals can do that by being aware of how to eat a balanced diet and how to read nutrition facts labels and to discover the Dietary Guidelines and MyPlate. Our motto is, "make it visual, impactful, relevant to the audience, and fun"!

Some more relevant ideas include:

  • Consuming fewer calories
  • Getting daily exercise
  • Making informed food choices
