Take the Fight out of Food!

What is Nutrition Month?
Throughout March, dietitians across Canada will host events in their communities, on social media and in their workplaces to help Canadians improve their relationship with food, no matter what the struggle. This Nutrition Month, dietitians across Canada will ease frustrations and close this knowledge gap by teaching Canadians how to overcome their food fights with a simple three-step approach – spot the problem, get the facts and seek support.
With accurate information and a good support system, Canadians will be better equipped to make decisions about food, without the fight.
