March is National Nutrition Month

Fruits and vegetables
Tuesday, March 12, 2013

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has declared March as National Nutrition Month. This year's theme is "Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day".

Wednesday, March 13 is designated as Registered Dietitian Day. Registered Dietitians (RD) are food and nutrition experts, translating the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. The expertise, training and credentials that back a RD are vital for promoting positive lifestyle choices. RD's draw on their experience to develop a personalized nutrition plan for individuals of all ages. They are able to separate facts from fads and translate nutrition science into usable and understandable information. The VA employs RDs to work side by side with other allied health professions to ensure the Veterans that served their country are served in return through optimal education and nutrition for healing and living a healthy life.
