National Nutrition Month and Beyond
Put Your Best Fork Forward

Throughout the month of March we celebrated National Nutrition Month® (NNM), a nutrition education and information campaign created annually by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (Academy). The campaign focused  attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. The March 2017 theme for National Nutrition Month® is “Put Your Best Fork Forward.” 

The theme serves as a reminder - "Each one of us holds the tool to make healthier food choices." Making small changes over time helps improve health now and into the future. As nutrition experts, Academy members can help guide the public on gradually shifting toward healthier eating styles.

Visit the Academy’s website to view a library of recipes designed to help you “Put Your Best Fork Forward.”

As part of this public education campaign, the Academy’s National Nutrition Month website includes a variety of helpful tips, games, promotional tools and nutrition education resources, all designed to spread the message of good nutrition based on the “Put Your Best Fork Forward.”


The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is the world’s largest organization of food and nutrition professionals. The Academy is committed to improving the nation’s health and advancing the profession of dietetics through research, education and advocacy. Visit the Academy at News
