Here’s to Great Nutrition!

Eating is so much more than just food – it’s a celebration of culture, tradition and health! Let’s celebrate nutrition by enjoying food with family and friends. Cooking more often and eating meals with others can make a difference in our overall health and well-being. 

Here are some tips to nourish your body and soul:


✅   Choose foods for enjoyment, culture, traditions, budget, health and celebrations.

✅   Enjoy a variety of foods, including those recommended by Canada’s Food Guide.

✅   Include plant-based foods like tofu, beans, peas, pulses, nuts, seeds, vegetables and fruits.

✅   Listen to your body’s hunger and fullness cues.

✅   Cook and share meals with loved ones often.


The 2024 Nutrition Month theme was “We are Dietitians”. Dietitians are the trusted nutrition professionals that know that the foundation of a well-balanced diet is to choose nutrient rich foods.
