March is Nutrition Month.


March is Nutrition Month. Let’s Take the Fight Out of Food

This Month, dietitians across Canada will ease the 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.

Eat Right Ontario and HealthLink BC revealed that Canadians struggle with five common ‘food fights’, including:

  • Food Fads: How do I know which nutrition information to trust?
  • Digestive Woes: What’s causing all this gas?
  • Picky Eating: Why is family mealtime such mayhem?
  • Eating and Stress: Why do I always turn to food when I’m stressed?
  • Managing a Condition (e.g. diabetes): How can I manage my diabetes?
