March is Nutrition Month and this year builds on the 2018 campaign that saw dietitians help Canadians Unlock the Potential of Food, highlighting how food can not only nourish you, but also fuel active lives, inspire children, help to heal, prevent chronic diseases – and most importantly – bring people together. For 2019, Nutrition Month will put the focus on the important role dietitians play when it comes to food and nutrition.
The dietitians at the CSCE offer free individual consultations in nutrition and provide personalized advice on healthy eating for gradual and sustainable changes in eating habits and behaviours. The dietitians also carry out health promotion activities aimed at improving or maintaining the health of individuals and the general population. In addition they encourage healthy eating habits while respecting each person’s needs and lifestyle.
