Eat Right with Color
Celebrate National Nutrition Month (March 2011)

Designed for National Nutrition Month® (NNM), a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the American Dietetic Association (ADA). The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. The March 2011 theme for National Nutrition Month® is "Eat Right with Color."

The theme explores the health benefits associated with eating foods of many colors. "Eating a rainbow” refers to including color diversity in your meals and food choices, so as to enhance your intake of a wide range of nutrients.

During the month of March, we will explore the colors of foods and their benefits.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
