August is Kids Eat Right Month!


The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has been committed to childhood obesity prevention and a quality nutrition approach for years and we are energized by the momentum created by First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign. The Academy and its Foundation’s new member-driven campaign, Kids Eat Right, supports the White House’s Childhood Obesity Task Force recommendations as well as the goals and tactics identified by the Academy’s Childhood Obesity Prevention Coalition and we need YOU to share your expertise on the importance of implementing scientifically-based food and nutrition information to defeat this epidemic.

Here’s how to get involved:
