WAND has contacted the governor's office and explained that National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. They were also informed that the campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. NNM also promotes the Academy and its members to the public and the media as the most valuable and credible source of timely, scientifically based food and nutrition information.

As a result the attached
2014 proclamation has been signed by the governor. I encourage you to print and display proudly at your place of employment and share with any media that you have access to.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day is Wednesday, March 12
. Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day increases awareness of registered dietitian nutritionists as the indispensible providers of food and nutrition services and recognizes RDNs for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives. The seventh annual Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day will be celebrated on Wednesday, March 12, 2014.
