The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recognizes National Nutrition Month each March to bring focus to healthy living. This year’s theme, Personalize Your Plate, encourages people to choose foods that are healthy and that appeal specifically to them. K-State Research and Extension nutrition specialist Sandy Procter says the new Dietary Guidelines for Americans and this year’s theme fit nicely together. She also says it’s never too late to start making healthier food choices and improve quality of life.
