National Nutrition Month®
Do you have a project idea for National Nutrition Month®? The Kansas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is proud to offer funding to KSAND members. Grants applications are due by February 15, 2019. Find out more information here.
National Nutrition Month® is celebrated each year during the month of March. Starting this year, we are honoring National Nutrition Month® as its own theme. This will allow greater flexibility in the promotion of healthful messages. Plus, it allows the campaign to focus on its original purpose, which is: “To increase the public’s awareness of the importance of good nutrition and position Academy members as the authorities in nutrition.”
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day
In 2019, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics celebrates Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day on Wednesday, March 13. As the nation’s food and nutrition experts, registered dietitian nutritionists are committed to improving the health of their patients and community.
First celebrated in 2008, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day commemorates the dedication of RDNs as advocates for advancing the nutritional status of Americans and people around the world. Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day was created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to increase the awareness of registered dietitian nutritionists as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services and to recognize RDNs for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives. Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day and National Nutrition Month® promote the Academy and RDNs to the public and the media as the most valuable and credible source of timely, scientifically-based food and nutrition information.
