March is National Nutrition Month!

Created 50 years ago in the year 1973, the National Nutrition Month campaign was put into effect to invite everyone to learn about nutritional food choices and developing healthy eating and physical activity habits. The importance of healthy exercising and maintaining a balanced diet cannot be shined upon enough, for children and adults alike. Here are some very effective ways we can engage children in our communities to observe National Nutrition Month:

 

Get Active!  

Promote an increase in physical activity by engaging in outdoor sports and events, or maybe using indoor exercising equipment if the spring warm weather is already too hot in your community. Children can unite with friends and play outdoor games like “tag” or “hide and seek”, as well as play sports like soccer, football, baseball, basketball, or any others that may help them be more active while having fun! Adults can also engage in sports and get memberships to local gyms. These activities will not only promote nutrition and exercise among both adults and children, but they can also help increase social skills and build long-lasting relationships.  

Consult with a Dietitian  

A dietitian can help provide you with a detailed meal plan that can be customized for you and your families specific lifestyle, preferences, and goals. Dietitian services are also covered by most health insurance plans! This process could be extremely useful for children and adults alike. Consulting with dietitians can also be beneficial to children to help ensure that they develop healthy eating habits early in life.  

 

A Nutrition Inspired Journey  

Bettering your quality of life doesn’t stop at just you! Encourage those around you to explore new and more nutritious recipes in daily meals. The internet is a fantastic source of new information on recipes that can be very effective alternatives to the current diet for you and your children. Explore new and trending recipes on social media such as TikTok, Reels and Pinterest.

 

Spread the word! 

As with all annual campaigns for health awareness and information, spreading the word through multiple communications channels available (social media or word of mouth!) is always boosts the success of the campaign. If we all take the time to help spread  awareness of National Nutrition Month, we could make a significant differences in the lives of many! Don’t forget to inform children to reach out in their schools and propose the lunch room and classrooms to take action to create National Nutrition Month activities for students. The possibilities are just as endless as the number of positive impacts we can create for our community.
