About National Nutrition Month
National Nutrition Month (NNM) is focused on highlighting the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. The theme for National Nutrition Month 2017 is “Put Your Best Fork Forward”. NNM began as National Nutrition Week in 1973, and was ‘promoted’ to a month-long celebration in 1980.
