Nutrition Month

The Nutrition Month 2018 campaign is dedicated to helping Canadians Unlock the Potential of Food to fuel, discover, prevent, heal and bring us together. The campaign highlights five ways that Canadians can unlock the potential of food:

  • Potential to fuel: Stay energized by planning nutritious snacks into your day.
  • Potential to discover: Foster healthy eating habits in children by teaching them to shop and cook.
  • Potential to prevent: Understand how food can help prevent chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
  • Potential to heal: Learn how food can promote healing and how dietitians work in health care teams to make a difference.
  • Potential to bring us together: Enjoy the benefits of bringing families and friends together with food.
