March is National Nutrition Month, when the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics reminds everyone to return to the basics of healthy eating. It is also the time of year when the Academy celebrates expertise of registered dietitian nutritionists as the food and nutrition experts.

Eating right doesn't have to be complicated — simply begin to shift to healthier food and beverage choices. These recommendations from the Dietary Guidelines for Americans can help get you started.
•Emphasize fruit, vegetables, whole grains and low-fat or fat-free milk and milk products.
•Include lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs and nuts.
•Make sure your diet is low in saturated fats, trans fats, salt (sodium) and added sugars.
