This nutrition education and information campaign is sponsored each year by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The campaign focuses on how to make informed food choices and develop sound eating and physical activity habits. Promote healthy nutrition with children, families and staff at your program. Examine the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ website. Use National Nutrition Month toolkit with individual files such as 20 Health Tips. See Smart Snacking Tips for Kids.
Use the Healthy Kids, Healthy Future resources. Review the Nutrition and Physical Activity Self- Assessment for Child Care (Go NAP SACC). Based on your assessment, develop an action plan to make improvements. Share these nutrition tips for infants, toddlers and preschoolers with families from the Early Childhood Learning & Knowledge Center (ECLKC). Encourage small changes to improve healthy eating and habits.
