National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. In addition, National Nutrition Month® promotes the Academy and its members to the public and the media as the most valuable and credible source of timely, scientifically-based food and nutrition information.
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, celebrated on the second Wednesday in March, increases awareness of registered dietitian nutritionists as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services and recognizes RDNs for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives.
2018 NNM Theme
"Go Further with Food" is the theme for 2018, and its importance is timely for many reasons. Whether it's starting the day off right with a healthy breakfast or fueling before an athletic event, the foods you choose can make a difference. Preparing foods to go further at home and within the community can have a positive impact, as well. As nutrition experts, Academy members can help people adopt healthier eating styles, while reducing food loss and waste.
Be sure to revisit the Academy's National Nutrition Month® website during the upcoming months for new and updated resources to help make the NNM 2018 celebration an infinite success!
Initiated in March 1973 as a week-long event, "National Nutrition Week" became a month-long observance in 1980 in response to growing public interest in nutrition. Read more in the article, "National Nutrition Month: A Brief History."
The Academy's mission is to promote optimal nutrition and well-being for all people by advocating for its members. With more than 100,000 credentialed practitioners, the Academy is the world's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals.

Themes of the New Millennium
With the first "National Nutrition Week" in 1973, it was embraced by members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics as a way to deliver nutrition education messages to the public while promoting the profession of dietetics. In 1980, the week-long celebration expanded to become National Nutrition Month®. Over the years, the theme has reflected trends and culture of the time, but has always remained true to its original purpose: "To increase the public's awareness of the importance of good nutrition and position Academy members as the authorities in nutrition."
