Let's All Eat Right Day 2023: Date, History, Facts, Activities

Let’s All Eat Right Day is observed annually on February 25 to honour Adelle Davis, a prominent nutritionist, author, and game-changer in the nutrition movement of the 1900s. Therefore, we are here to put a face to some of the fundamental contributions to the field of nutrition. This sage saying, “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper,” is attributed to Davis.

The background of Let’s All Eat Right Day

Food is as important to humans as air and water, and one could argue that it is more important because it affects us in ways beyond the physical. Food can alter your disposition, communicate with your soul, and alter your self-perception. Thus, on some level, we all desire a healthy diet and are receptive to making changes that may improve our health. Therefore, it is only appropriate that there be a day to celebrate healthy eating, which will hopefully set us all on a lifelong path towards a healthier relationship with food.

Nutrition has existed as long as humans have, but it wasn’t until 400 B.C. that the Greek physician Hippocrates observed the impact food has on physical health, particularly in terms of disease prevention and treatment. The medicinal properties of ancient foods (such as the use of garlic to treat stomach ailments) and the birth of nutritional science are relatively recent developments. Beginning with the discovery of vitamins, their effects on disease were synthesised and studied. Dr. Casimir Funk coined the term ‘vitamin’ from the words ‘vital’ and ‘amine’ in 1912. The outbreak of World War I caused widespread fear of food shortages and compelled nutritional scientists to concentrate on food as a disease preventative. Around this time, the first Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) were issued. Since then, nutritional science has been a rapidly expanding field of study, and none of us can escape its influence.

Let’s All Eat Right Day was first observed on Adelle Davis’s birthday as a tribute to her work and legacy. The exact date of the first Let’s All Eat Right Day is unknown. Davis’ research and publications had a significant impact on the average American consumer, despite her fair share of controversy, with bestsellers such as “Let’s Eat Right to Keep Fit” (1954) and “Let’s Cook it Right” (1947). Her emphasis was on promoting whole foods over processed foods containing additives and promoting the importance of taking nutritional supplements to prevent disease and possibly other social ills. In the early 1900s, vitamins were first introduced, and the concept of their value as dietary supplements grew. It created a new market niche for scientifically supported health products. Congress passed the Dietary and Supplement Health and Education Act in October 1994 to regulate nutritional supplement standards.

Examine some fresh produce.

Whether you have always read the labels on your groceries or not, we urge you to begin doing so immediately. In addition, we encourage you to purchase an entire meal at the closest Farmer’s Market or fresh produce centre. The outcome will be well worth the effort, but don’t blame us if your cooking skills are subpar!

Participate in research

Internet is, without a doubt, our go-to resource for researching anything. It makes sense that the nutrition information we consume originates from credible research and sources. Donations to non-profit organisations such as the Adelle Davis Foundation can help fund university grants for nutrition-related educational programmes and endeavours.

Make a dietary change

Although this may be easier said than done, the initial change can be small. And if you dislike the word “diet” because it contains the word “die,” there are plenty of alternatives, such as clean eating (for instance).


Many low-fat food options contain added sugar, so be wary.

Almonds are classified as seeds and are in the family of peaches.

strawberries contain less sugar than lemons.

White chocolate is not chocolate because cocoa solids are absent.

Cabbage consists of 91% water and 9% plant matter, making it comparable to lettuce and cucumbers.
