March is National Nutrition Month®, when the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics reminds everyone to return to the basics of healthful eating. March is also when the Academy celebrates Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, honoring the contributions and expertise of all RDNs as the food and nutrition experts. This year, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day will take place March 8.
“Registered dietitian nutritionists are dedicated to improving people’s health through food and nutrition,” says registered dietitian nutritionist and Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Spokesperson Lauri Wright.
“It is crucial for consumers to know whom to trust when they are seeking timely, accurate and science-based nutrition advice from an educated, experienced and trusted expert,” Wright says. “You know you are getting the best possible advice when it comes from a registered dietitian nutritionist.”
