What we put on our plates today is no longer a simple decision. Many foods today have ingredients that people cannot pronounce and our ancestors would have no idea what it is. There are also many factors that the consumer now considers: Is it low fat? Low sodium? Low carb? Low calorie? All these questions leave us with one more question - What should we eat? With all the mixed messages about food today, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has sponsored National Nutrition Month.

The March 2012 theme is "Get Your Plate in Shape."
