August 2023 Monthly Message

By Brian Sarna posted 08-03-2023 05:11 PM


Every August, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and our Foundation celebrates Kids Eat Right Month™ by putting a spotlight on the importance of healthful eating and active lifestyles for children and families. I encourage all Academy members to share the many resources the Academy has put together to promote healthful food choices and physical activity habits, culturally relevant tips and recipes to help consumers shop smart and cook healthful foods.

This great content includes targeted resources for Parents & Kids, Schools, Community Leaders and RDNs & NDTRs and the best ways to share this content is by taking advantage of the social media toolkit the Academy put together for us to easily post custom graphics, hashtags and links on our social media platforms.

Our Foundation launched the Kids Eat Right campaign in 2014 to support public education projects and programs to promote healthy lifestyles for children of all ages. We offer resources, toolkits and webinars on our Foundation’s Kids Eat Right page that you can use year-round in your communities to engage and educate your constituents.

The best way to keep up with our Kids Eat Right program is to subscribe to the weekly Kids Eat Right & Foundation e-newsletter, delivered to your inbox every Monday with articles, research, recipes and the latest Foundation news.

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™!
