National Nutrition Month

March is national nutrition month and it’s a perfect time to revisit your meal prep plan. March is dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of making informed food choices and developing healthy eating habits. Throughout the month, there are a ton of events, programs and activities designed to encourage and educate on nutritious food choices and balanced lifestyles. There is plenty to do for kids and adults.

National nutrition month was initiated in 1973 by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Since then each year has had a unique theme and promoted different aspects of healthy living.

This year’s theme is “Beyond the Table,” which addresses the farm-to-fork aspect of nutrition, from food production and distribution to navigating grocery stores and farmers markets — and even home food safety and storage practices. This is an excellent time to revisit your meal prep routine and consider how to incorporate more fresh foods.  Fresh foods doesn’t have to mean directly from the farm but local farmers’ markets are a great way to find fresh produce.

One key aspect of National Nutrition Month is the promotion of a well-rounded and diverse diet that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and dairy products. Prep Yo Self meal plans provide well rounded nutrition for busy adults. Balanced meals that are easy to cook and store well throughout the week.

This theme also includes food sustainability, decreasing food waste from school and work to home. Meal prepping can be a great way to consciously plan meals that avoid food waste. Making lunches at home for work or school is a great way to prepare exactly as much food as you need. 

National Nutrition Month also serves as a platform for healthcare professionals, educators, and community leaders to collaborate and share valuable information about nutrition. If you do work in a nutrition or healthy lifestyle profession, this is a great time to design your own course or newsletter. Spread your knowledge of healthy living!
