National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, formerly the American Dietetic Association. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

Eating Right means eating with color and portion control, the more colorful your shopping basket and your dinner plate, the better the nutrition.  Make one night an international meal night. This makes it easier to expand those taste buds. An easy way to have a colorful plate is by adding variety.

Every time you shop, buy a new fruit or a vegetable that you have never had before and learn to cook/eat it. This not only adds to the excitement of food preparation it automatically adds variety to your diet and provides you with essentials vitamins and minerals and other trace elements that a monotonous and repetitive meal may lack.
