March is flying by and my team and I are still hard at work to make resources to help you and your clients make the most of National Nutrition Month®. Check out what we've got so far...
- National Nutrition Month® Overview
- Get Ready for Week One
- Get Ready for Week Two
- Get Ready for Week Three
- Celebrate Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day
And that brings us to Week Four. With the guide below, you'll have plenty of time to get your plans in place so that you can execute them on Week Four of National Nutrition Month®, which happens from March 22-28.
This week's theme is "Consult a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN)."
Here are the mini lessons that make up Week Four's theme...
- Ask your doctor for a referral to an RDN.
- Receive personalized nutrition advice to meet your goals.
- Meet RDNs in a variety of settings in your community.
- Find an RDN who is specialized to serve your unique needs.
- Thrive through the transformative power of personalized nutrition.
As you've probably noticed, this week is a little different than previous weeks, which means that our resources to help you make the most of it are a little different too.
If you're a health educator but not an RDN, reach out to your community and find a few RDNs to get to know. They can be wonderful resources for planning events, personalized counseling, offering nutrition insight, and lots more. Having a diverse range of healthcare and nutrition experts on your team can make so many aspects of your work easier.
If you are an RDN, this is your month to shine! Make connections, highlight the lessons of National Nutrition Month® and try new ways to help your clients make healthful decisions.
Whether you're an RDN or not, the toolkits from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics can be useful to you, especially in Week Four. Don't miss...

Another useful tool is our member newsletter, which highlights the latest health and nutrition research, features creative handouts on hot topics, and always contains two brand-new recipes that are both healthful and delicious. It also comes with a white label newsletter that you can adjust and distribute as your own.
And there you have it! A boatload of resources to help you make the most of National Nutrition Month®!
