www.dietitians.ca  provides a variety of fact sheets on various topics from A to Z in the ‘Your Health’ section of this web site. The facts have been verified using Practice-based Evidence in Nutrition.  Why prepare your own fact sheets when we have done it for you? With support from the BC Ministry of Health, we also offer a Fact Sheet Generator which you can use to generate your own fact sheets on two topics – sugary drinks and sodium reduction.
