Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Academy Foundation Announce Kids Eat Right Month

To Our Fellow Academy Members:

We have exciting news to share! To celebrate the contributions of food and nutrition professionals in helping children eat well, and to encourage all Academy members to help ensure the next generation of Americans is the healthiest ever, the Academy and the Foundation announce the first-ever Kids Eat Right Month.

For the entire month of August, we are spotlighting healthy nutrition and active lifestyles for children and families, as well as the role Academy members play as the food and nutrition experts when it comes to eating right.

Kids Eat Right Month is devoted to nutrition education and action. Find out how you can get involved by visiting, where you can also sign up to become a Kids Eat Right campaign member. As a campaign member, you can access free resources and toolkits, as well as grant opportunities to support your work.

Please encourage your community to celebrate Kids Eat Right Month as well. Solving childhood obesity and improving the nutritional health of children requires all of us working together. That's why we're calling on all stakeholders – parents and kids, schools, community leaders, faith groups, public policy leaders and organizations – to visit where they will find action items and opportunities to collaborate with registered dietitian nutritionists like you in local communities across the country. Together, our local outreach can result in a big impact nationwide and turn the tide in improving children's health.

Throughout August, share photos and stories of your Kids Eat Right Month activities for a chance to be highlighted in the Academy's social media accounts and in Eat Right Weekly.

Join the thousands of Academy members who have already signed up as Kids Eat Right campaign members and help make the first Kids Eat Right Month one to remember!
