What’s Up in the World?

Did you know it’s National Nutrition Month? The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics sponsors this annual campaign to focus national attention on making healthy food and lifestyle choices. Time is featuring health tips from ten fitness and health experts, and the National Education Association is providing materials to support teachers’ efforts to instill sound nutritional information in children. Based on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s nutrition guidelines, the information shared through the media and the government is intended to educate and inspire people to change their lives for the healthier. Do you think it’s a good idea to have resources devoted to a National Health Month? What do you think of the MyPlate nutrition guidelines? How do you feel about the advice from the experts that Time interviewed?
