Welcome to Kids Eat Right Month™!

Every August, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and our Foundation celebrates Kids Eat Right Month. We put a spotlight on the importance of healthful eating and active lifestyles for children and families.

The Kids Eat Right program was created by the Academy and our Foundation in 2014. Kids Eat Right mobilizes food and nutrition professional , in a grassroots movement to share healthful eating messages to help families embrace nutritious eating habits.

The Academy has put together great free resources and information on Eat Right for Kids for us to utilize during August. This includes a social media toolkit with graphics and messages. I encourage you to share these on your preferred social media channels.

Using this ready-to-post content offers us many ways to support parents, grandparents, caregivers, and educators to help kids eat well and have fun, wherever our kids eat and learn.

Also, find other incredible resources for community leaders, schools, parents, and kids on our Foundation’s Kids Eat Right page. With ideas for every age group from infants to teens, Kids Eat Right is a program we all should be proud to promote. Please join me in spreading the messages of Kids Eat Right.

Subscribe to the Foundation’s Kids Eat Right & Foundation e-newsletter to receive articles, research, recipes and the latest news from the Foundation every Monday.

Thank you as always for your support of our Foundation! Keep in mind that our Foundation does not receive any portion of member dues and relies solely on donations to support its efforts. Please consider a gift to the Foundation’s Annual Fund in honor of Kids Eat Right Month™!
