(Black PR Wire) March is National Nutrition Month®! Established by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in 1973, National Nutrition Month promotes a healthy, balanced lifestyle and encourages healthy habits to benefit individuals and families alike. This year’s theme, “Fuel for the Future,“ encourages us to eat with sustainability in mind as a way to nourish ourselves during every phase of life, while protecting the environment.
Eating healthy is the key to getting proper nutrition. It improves our physical health, boosts our energy and helps us keep our weight in check. The benefits of eating healthfully can add up over time. Some easy ways to fuel for the future include: buying in-season and locally, eating more plant-based foods, and planning your grocery list. You’ll enjoy healthier, more nutritious meals and be kinder to the environment and your pocket.
It’s never too early or too late to eat healthfully! We can fuel the future for ourselves and our planet with a few minor adjustments. To get additional food and nutrition information, visit eatright.org.
