A lil' History About NNM
www.NationalNutritionMonth.org
When did the National Nutrition Month begin?
Actually, it started out as just a 'National Nutrition Week' back in 1973. But it grew more into National Nutrition Month in 1890 out of people giving more interest over the years. Taking advantage of National Nutrition Month, many people began to introduce campaigns for nutritional information and public relations. By 1990's National Nutrition Month was out on the internet for everyone to see! In 33 years the National Nutrition Month campaign has been by-far a continuing success because of The Academy's members and other healthcare professionals who continue to plan and create events, big or small, for anyone who is interested in having a healthier life.

Why is important?
National Nutrition Month is mainly targeted for kids, teens and young adults to encourage them to make healthier food choices and increase physical activity habits. 

13% to 25%-30% of children are estimated 
over-weight and percentage is still growing since the '70's. 

That can make a child a easy risk for health problems and self-esteem in their future. Over one million boys and girls have eating disorders, that means early eating habits are important for children heath risk.
No Matter What
 You Are Made The Way You Are
For A Reason!
Make Better choices in your life and be the best you that you can be. Only you can do it. Get Active, Play outside, Run around! Do something and don't be just a couch potato! Take A Bite Into A Better And Healthier Life, You Won't Regret It.
