This year marks the 50th Anniversary of National Nutrition Month® created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This year's theme is "Fuel for the Future." Eating with sustainability nourishes us during our life and protects the environment. A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist can help you create healthy habits that are sustainable and celebrate your unique needs.
The FAO’s definition of sustainable diets:
Sustainable Diets are those diets with low environmental impacts that contribute to food and nutrition security and to healthy life for present and future generations. Sustainable diets are protective and respectful of biodiversity and ecosystems, culturally acceptable, accessible, economically fair, and affordable; nutritionally adequate, safe, and healthy; while optimizing natural and human resources.
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day is also celebrated during National Nutrition Month, on the second Wednesday in March. This occasion increases awareness of registered dietitian nutritionists as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services while recognizing both RDNs and nutrition and dietetic technicians registered for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives.
