The Pasta Fits campaign helps consumers to understand the role of carbohydrates, specifically pasta, in a healthy diet and in weight loss. A highlight of the promotion is the celebration of National Pasta Month in October. National Pasta Month observances will include the promotion of appetizing new pasta recipes, healthy diet tips and media appearances.
