News and views on breastfeeding, human milk, and all things lactation education

March 2023

March is National Nutrition Month®, an annual campaign by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, to highlight the importance of making informed food choices across the lifespan. The theme this year, “Fuel for the Future”,emphasizes the importance of eating sustainably to nourish our bodies throughout each phase of life and to protect our environment. NACCHO has worked on fueling the future by focusing on the earlier phases of the life cycle, the first 1,000 days. NACCHO is celebrating by sharing newly created early childhood nutrition resources and hosting a webinar highlighting their latest work with public health nutritionists and community stakeholders.
