31 Tips for National Nutrition Month

Feb 27, 2017

Did you know that March is National Nutrition Month? National Nutrition Month is an annual campaign created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to educate and encourage healthy eating and physical activity habits. There is so much more to a healthy lifestyle than eating the right amount of fruits and vegetables, although those are important factors. This month, try to focus on your body: what does it want, what does it need, and how can you fill it in the most nutritious way possible? How can you treat your body nutritiously? Whether you aim to eat more meals at home, add in some extra steps during the day, or reduce stress by treating yourself to a massage this month, there are so many ways you can participate in National Nutrition Month and find yourself inspired to fulfill nutritional goals.

 

Because there are 31 days in March, below are 31 ideas to make the most of National Nutrition Month. Try to do one of these a day, or maybe pick a few to focus on throughout the month:
