Q: What is the theme for this years National Nutrition Month and what does it mean to you?

A: March is National Nutrition Month and the theme this year is "Go Further With Food". This may mean a number of things to a number of people, but to me the message is complex and not necessarily what the academy had in mind. What I hear from this message is an invitation to consumers to go beyond the trends, to step past the standard food choices, to learn more about where their food is coming from, to understand how to prepare their food and how to season different foods, to learn how foods help and hurt their body rather than just looking at food as good or bad. The academy intended this years theme to be about planning and thinking ahead, which does fit, but to this dietitian this years slogan feels a bit deeper.


Whether you care about National Nutrition Month or not, I encourage you to find your own interpretation and then apply it to your life. I welcome you to "Go Further With Your Food."
