We are so excited to be part of this year’s Dietitians of Canada Nutrition Month Campaign. We are celebrating Nutrition Month 2018 by helping Canadians unlock the potential of food to fuel, discover, prevent, heal, and bring us together.
This year, Dietitian’s Canada will help illustrate that food has the potential to:
Fuel: Stay energized by planning nutritious snacks into your day.
Discover: Foster healthy eating habits in children by teaching them to shop and cook.
Prevent: Understand how food can help prevent chronic diseases like Type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Heal: Learn how food can promote healing and how dietitians work in health care teams to make a difference.
Bring us together: Enjoy the benefits of bringing families and friends together with food.
Did you know that you can find dietitians working in many places, including hospitals, grocery stores, community health centers, universities, rehabilitation facilities, seniors’ residences and long-term care settings?
They all have one thing in common: They love food – it unites us all! Whether they are counselling a patient recovering from a heart attack, teaching a cooking class or taking students through a tour of a grocery store, they are all passionate about the potential of food and its connection to health. You will learn so much this month about the amazing potential of food!
To make Nutrition Month come alive, we are going to be focusing on all of the topics listed above and we will provide you with some more resources and tips to help you unlock the potential of food!
