“MORE THAN FOOD”- Nutrition Month 2020. March is Nutrition Month and this year’s theme recognizes that optimal nutrition goes beyond what we eat – it’s also about how we eat! Registered Dietitians have long been encouraging “Mindful Eating”, and the new 2019 Canada’s Food Guide reflects this messaging. Key messages include slowing down to take time to eat, paying attention to your hunger and fullness cues, planning meals/cooking at home, preparing and eating meals with others, enjoying your food and being mindful of your eating habits.

Healthy eating is about so much more than food!
Nutrition Month 2020 is your chance to show Canadians your skills, value and expertise through activities that focus on healthy eating habits like eating mindfully and cooking more often.
