Every year during March, we celebrate National Nutrition Month®, which is a nutrition education and information campaign sponsored by the Academy. It invites everyone to learn about making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. This year’s theme for National Nutrition Month® is Celebrate a World of Flavors, which embraces global cultures, cuisines and inclusivity.
Enjoying the different flavors of the world is a chance to learn more about your own food culture as well as those that may be new to you. Familiar ingredients can be presented in new ways and new foods may remind you of things you already know and love. Or, you may also come across ingredients and flavors you’ve never experienced before.
Trying foods and recipes from various cultures is a great way to incorporate different flavors and healthful ingredients. Many cuisines offer dishes which include foods from each food group, so it’s possible to plan meals that are nutritious, well-balanced, and bursting with flavor.
Nicole McGloshen MS, RD, LD is the N Good Health team’s registered dietitian. She creates exciting nutrition-focused programs and events that educates our associates on the wonderful world of balanced eating. To celebrate National Nutrition Month, she and the N Good health Team have fun events planned throughout the month of March.
Starting March 9, Every Wednesday during the month of March will feature an N Good Health Approved Entrée. Purchase the specified entree and receive a free bottle of water.
- Wellness Wednesday Sampling Events are scheduled for each Wednesday in March starting March 9. Check the Schedule below to see when the event is being hosted near you.
