National Nutrition Month – Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day

farmer's marketThis March marks the 40th anniversary of National Nutrition Month. National Nutrition Month, an annual nutrition education and information campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

This year’s National Nutrition Month 2013 theme is “Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day”. The theme encourages individuals to create personalized healthful eating styles* and recognizes that food preferences, lifestyle, cultural and ethnic traditions, and health concerns all impact individual food choices. The program emphasizes that registered dietitians play a critical role in helping people eat right, their way, every day.

Locally, the Lynn Cancer Institute Wellness Program and Boca Raton Regional Hospital are offering a seminar titled, “Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day” to support the National Nutrition Month campaign. The event will be held Thursday, March 21 from 5pm to 6pm at the Lynn Cancer Institute. Registration and a mini health fair will begin at 4:30pm. To RSVP, call 561.95.LEAR.
