Story Updated: Mar 1, 2010

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Monday, March 1 marked the start of National Nutrition Month, and those at Faxton-St. Luke's Healthcare are spending the month giving some simple tips to eating right.

Health care providers across the country are educating and giving out information on making informed food choices based on this year's theme of "from the ground up."

A registered dietitian at Faxton says it's important to eat organic foods.

National Nutrition Month is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the American Dietetic Association. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

Registered Dietitian Day, also celebrated in March, increases awareness of registered dietitians as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition services and recognizes RDs for their commitment to helping people enjoy healthy lives.
