HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - March 14, 2013) - DiabetesAmerica is proud to join the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics during March in celebrating National Nutrition Month
"DiabetesAmerica's educators are excited to incorporate this year's theme into our daily practice. Our education teams include Registered Dietitians assisting patients with meal planning according to lifestyle, preferences and ethnic and cultural traditions," said DiabetesAmerica Director of Education Mimi Waida, MS, RD, LD, CDE. "During March our centers will focus on incorporating 'Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day' into living well with diabetes."
Here are a few ways to "Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day" from the food and nutrition experts at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics:
Initiated in 1973 as a week-long event, "National Nutrition Week" became a month-long observance in 1980 in response to growing public interest in nutrition. Additionally, to commemorate the dedication of RDs as advocates for advancing the nutritional health of Americans and people around the world, the second Wednesday of March has been designated "Registered Dietitian Day." In 2013, RD Day is celebrated on March 13.
As part of this public education campaign, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' National Nutrition Month website includes a variety of helpful tips, fun games, promotional tools and nutrition education resources, all designed to spread the message of good nutrition around the "Eat Right, Your Way, Every Day" theme.
DiabetesAmerica is dedicated to helping diabetes patients understand their condition, manage it, and live a full life without becoming overwhelmed.
