National Nutrition Month® is here!

“National Nutrition Month® is an annual campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. During the month of March, everyone is invited to learn about making informed food choices and developing healthful eating and physical activity habits.” – EatRight.org

One of the most rewarding parts of working in the school nutrition industry is not only having the opportunity to serve kids nutritious meals but to educate both students and parents on the importance of nutrition. With National Nutrition Month® taking place in March, we put together a list of resources and links to help you promote living a nutritious lifestyle in your communities!
