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.
