Celebrate National Nutrition Month

-A A +A

The Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics designates the Month of March each year as National Nutrition Month to call attention to the importance of making healthy food choices.   "Put Your Best Fork Forward" is the theme for 2017 which serves as a reminder that each one of us holds the power to make healthier food choices.

How can you, “Put Your Best Fork Forward”?


  • Create an eating style that includes variety.  This may include visiting one of your local senior centers where you can enjoy delicious, affordable healthy meals.
  • Stay informed and up to date in your knowledge of nutrition.  The Office for Aging offers regular nutrition classes.  Upcoming classes called “The Agony of Heartburn” will focus on lifestyle and diet changes to make healthy food choices and reduce distress.  These classes are scheduled for:
