National Nutrition Month is an educational campaign focusing on the significance of physical fitness as well as eating nourishing meals. Taking charge of your health contributes to overall well-being; as well as losing weight or staying at your ideal weight, which reduces risks of chronic illness such as heart disease and diabetes.
The campaign, originally "National Nutrition Week," was first launched in 1973, with the theme "Invest in Yourself - Buy Nutrition." The American Dietetic Association (ADA) was an early advocate in getting the message to the public organizing educational events held in schools and health care centers.
This year's theme is "Bite into a Healthy Lifestyle," focusing on exercising regularly and making the best food choices.
