Celebrate Nutrition with the NNLM Reading Club

Posted by on March 2nd, 2020 Posted in: All of Us, Consumer Health, Education, Outreach


Good nutrition, combined with physical activity, can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases, and promote your overall health. Unfortunately, social factors such as poverty or inadequate food options may lead to obesity, malnourishment, and poor health. National Nutrition Month®, recognized each year during the month of March, focuses on the importance of making informed food choices, developing sound eating habits, and raising awareness of food insecurity.

To spark the conversation, check out the NNLM Reading Club Book Selections and Health Resources for Nutrition. Choose one of the three featured books:

  • Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food – Tenth Anniversary Edition by Barbara Kingsolver
  • In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto by Michael Pollan
  • Delicious!: A Novel by Ruth Reichl

For each of the featured book selections, you can download the discussion guide, promotional materials and corresponding health information. Short on time? No worries! Apply for a free NNLM Reading Club Book kit that includes everything you need to host a book club, delivered to your institution.
