National Nutrition Month
March is Nutrition Month and this year saw dietitians help Canadians Unlock the Potential of Food. Everyday dietitians help Canadians unlock the potential of food to enhance lives, improve health, inspire children, fuel activities and bring people together.
We realize that nutrition is much more than discovering vitamins and minerals. It is about getting enough of all the right foods in the calories allotted plus minimizing the processed foods that are over-consumed. In our super busy worlds where high-calorie, palatable foods are both convenient and abundant, nutrition for most consumers is more about navigating the systems of their lives to make good decisions than worrying about being vitamin deficient.
