August is Kids Eat Right Month - Share the Message

Kids Eat Right is a joint initiative from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (Academy) and Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation. Kids Eat Right supports the efforts of the White House to end the childhood obesity epidemic within a generation. The goal of Kids Eat Right is to educate families, communities, and policy makers about the importance of good nutrition.
August is Kids Eat Right Month, a new nutrition education, information sharing and action campaign created by Kids Eat Right, an initiative of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and its Foundation.

Kids Eat Right Month spotlights healthy nutrition and active lifestyles for children and families, offering simple steps to help families cook healthy, eat right and shop smart.





The Kids Eat Right website centers around the theme "Shop-Cook-Eat." The goal is to bring families together each day for nutritious meals by providing simple and easily to follow tasks.


 
Kids Eat Right

How to shop for healthy foods for your family.

How to cook foods to get the most nutrient value, including tips and recipes.

The benefits of eating together as well as tips to eat when away from home.
 Share the Monday Message Campaign involves Academy member volunteers who distribute weekly advice through social media channels (such as Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc.). The Kids Eat Right campaign provides resources to help Academy members become recognized leaders in childhood obesity prevention. Volunteers then educate the community on shopping ideas, cooking tips, eating right and recipes.

The following slides are examples of Monday Messages. Links to the articles are provided below. I encourage you to visit the Kids Eat Right website where you can view all the available messages.
