Celebrate National Nutrition Month® with SNAP-Ed NY

Are you ready to learn some tips to make small changes in your routines that will help make a big difference in your health, schedule, and budget?

(Herkimer, New York) SNAP-Ed New York invites you to join us in celebrating National Nutrition Month® this March through a 2-part series of live sessions hosted by our Nutrition Educators via the SNAP-Ed NY Facebook page and YouTube channel.

National Nutrition Month® is an annual campaign created 50 years ago in 1973 by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. During the month of March, everyone is invited to learn about making informed food choices and developing healthful eating and physical activity habits. This year’s theme is “Fuel for the Future.” Eating with sustainability in mind is a way to nourish ourselves during every phase of life while also protecting the environment. 

Our SNAP-Ed NY Nutritionists are collaborating to help create healthy habits that are both sustainable and consider a wide range of needs.

The two live program opportunities will take place on Wednesday, March 15th, and Thursday, March 30th from 12:00 – 12:30 P.M. Take a mid-day break and tune in as our Nutrition Educators are excited to share simple ways you can eat with the environment in mind, save money while grocery shopping, and cook tasty meals at home. 

We are looking forward to partnering with the community to provide nutrition events and education around the National Nutrition Month theme of Fueling Our Future!  The events will educate participants on eating with the environment in mind including tips for plant-based eating, staying nourished while saving money, and eating a variety of nutritious and tasty foods from all the food groups.   Join us and tune in to our live sessions on March 15th and March 30th on SNAP-Ed NY’s Facebook page, @SNAPEdNewYork or SNAP-Ed NY’s YouTube channel, @SNAP-Ed NY.
