March is National Nutrition Month®


The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics uses March to focus on the importance of making informed food choices and developing good eating and physical activity habits.3 Nutrition gives our body the energy we need, but exercise keeps us moving as we age. It is essential for healthy aging, and it’s never too late to start.
