Happy RD Day!

The entire month of March is National Nutrition Month, but today is dedicated to the RDs! Today, March 14, 2012, marks the fifth annual RD (Registered Dietitian) Day, a day celebrating RDs as the food and nutrition experts.

The goal of National Nutrition Month (NNM) is to raise public awareness of the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. RDs are given a day all their own to remind everyone that an RD is the best source of practical, affordable and credible food and nutrition information to promote these behaviors. RD Day celebrates the commitment of RDs, during NNM and throughout the year, as strong supporters of improving the nutrition and health of people across our nation.

I’d like to wish all my RD friends, interns and colleagues a happy RD Day. Thank you for your common dedication to health, wellness, the science of nutrition and communication of sound, livable nutrition advice!
