#History of National #NutritionWeek : It was first marked in March 1975 by members of the ADA (American Dietetic Association, now — the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics) to raise public awareness about the need of nutrition education while also promoting the profession of dietitians. The public response was so positive that the week-long celebration was expanded to a month-long event in 1980. However, in India, the central government decided to launch a campaign, National Nutrition Week in 1982. The campaign was created to educate individuals about the significance of nutrition and to urge them to live a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
