Wellfie Wednesday Tip #139: National Nutrition Month® 2019

Welcome back! Happy Wellfie Wednesday! And Happy National Nutrition Month®! This week is brought to you by Patrick (@TheFuelPhysio), our crew’s Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.

National Nutrition Month® is an annual campaign “To increase the public’s awareness of the importance of good nutrition and position Academy members as the authorities in nutrition.”


The Key Messages of this year’s campaign are:

  1. Discover the benefits of a healthy eating style.

  2. Choose foods and drinks that are good for your health.

  3. Include a variety of healthful foods from all of the food groups on a regular basis.

  4. Select healthier options when eating away from home.

  5. Be mindful of portion sizes. Eat and drink the amount that's right for you, as MyPlate encourages us to do.

  6. Keep it simple. Eating right doesn't have to be complicated.

  7. Make food safety part of your everyday routine.

  8. Help to reduce food waste by considering the foods you have on hand before buying more at the store.

  9. Find activities that you enjoy and be physically active most days of the week.

  10. Consult the nutrition experts. Registered Dietitian Nutritionists can provide sound, easy-to-follow personalized nutrition advice to meet your lifestyle, preferences and health-related needs.

Check out the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics website (https://www.eatright.org) for an abundance of resources for healthier eating.
