“Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner.” is arguably one of the most successful food-specific advertising slogans and campaigns to launch in the 1990s and, perhaps, ever. Odds are, this slogan still pops up in your mind from time-to-time.
The existence of one of beef’s most famous slogans in your brain almost 30 years after its launch is powerful, and it’s what the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics hopes happens with their decision to designate March as National Nutrition Month. The Academy pinpoints March as the perfect time to encourage informed food choices and healthy eating and physical activity habits.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics makes it easy for you by breaking down each week of March into the following action items:
WEEK ONE: Eat a variety of nutritious foods every day!
- Include healthful foods from all food groups.
