What can you do at home this month?

  1. Try a new fruit or vegetable each week during National Nutrition Month®.
  2. Give family members a role in meal planning and let them pick out different recipes to try.
  3. Plan to eat more meals together as a family during National Nutrition Month®.
  4. Explore food recovery options in your community.
  5. If you watch TV, take breaks during commercials to be physically active.
  6. Practice mindful eating by limiting screentime at mealtime — including phones, computers, TV and other devices.
  7. Try more meatless meals — choices like beans and lentils are versatile plant-based protein sources that work in a variety of dishes.
  8. Let everyone help with food preparation — a skill for people of all ages. If you have kids, there are age-appropriate tasks they may enjoy learning how to do.
  9. Bring out the flavors of food by trying new herbs, spices or citrus fruit such as lemon or lime.
