March is National Nutrition Month®
National Nutrition Month
How, when, why and where we eat are just as important as what we eat. Making sure to enjoy the sight, sounds, memories and interactions associated with eating are essential to developing an overall healthy eating plan. The Tulsa Health Department invites you to celebrate National Nutrition Month® and savor the flavor of eating right this month and throughout the year!
Come learn new recipes and techniques for preparing delicious meals taught by a registered dietitian. We are pleased to offer these free cooking demostrations to the community at 6:00 p.m. at our North Regional Health and Wellness Center, 56th & MLK Jr. Blvd, location that features a full demonstration kitchen. Each attendee will enjoy free samples of the dishes prepared, and will take home recipe cards and educational handouts. Space is limited, so you must pre-register to attend or call Terri Snodgrass at 918.595.4419.

National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, formerly the American Dietetic Association. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, also celebrated in March, increases awareness of registered dietitian nutritionists as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services and recognizes RDNs for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives.
