Did you know? March is Nutrition Month

Each year, the Dietitians of Canada create a Nutrition Month campaign in March to raise awareness and support Canadians in eating healthy. This year’s campaign theme is:

Take the Fight out of Food! Spot the problem. Get the facts. Seek support.

Essentially, the focus is on eliminating struggles related to food. Do any of these scenarios sound familiar to you?

FOOD FADS: Ugh! How do I know which nutrition information to trust?
DIGESTIVE WOES: Eek! What’s causing all this gas?
PICKY EATING: Grr! Why is family mealtime such mayhem?
EATING AND STRESS: Help! Why do I always turn to food when I’m stressed?
MANAGING A CONDITION: Sigh….how can I manage my diabetes?
(Nutrition Month 2017 Ambassador Toolkit, Dietitians of Canada)

There are helpful resources available to help take the fight out of food and turn negative experiences into positive ones.
