Did you know that March is Nutrition Month? Every year in March, dietitians across the country remind us of the importance of healthy eating and the positive impact nutrition has on our health and well-being. The 2017 theme for Nutrition Month is: Take the fight out of food! - Spot the Problem. Get the Facts. Seek Support.
We will be posting more information on Nutrition Month activities and resources throughout March. Follow the Grey Bruce Health Unit on Facebook and Twitter to hear about it first!
National Dietitians Day
Once a year, a special day is dedicated to all dietitians across Canada. It celebrates dietitians as health care professionals, committed to using their specialized knowledge and skills in food and nutrition to improve the health of Canadians.
March 15th, 2017 marks the eighth anniversary of Dietitians Day. It spotlights the profession and reminds us that dietitians are the smart choice for advice on proper eating, good nutrition and healthy living.
Dietitians work in many settings including public health, hospitals, long-term care, private practice, family health teams, agri-food business, and more! Talk to a dietitian to learn more about their role in promoting healthy and delicious food choices.
