National Nutrition Month 2014

The theme for this year’s National Nutrition Month is “Enjoy the taste of eating right!” Consumer research confirms that taste tops nutrition as the main reason why one food is purchased over another. This year’s key messages for NNM will focus on how to combine taste and nutrition to create healthy meals that follow the Dietary Guidelines recommendations.

What does this year’s slogan mean to you and your family? Is taste really the overall factor when it comes to deciding what to eat? Share your thoughts!
