TORONTO, ON —Dietitians across Canada will be sharing their favourite tips for how to stick with healthy eating changes on social media today using the hashtag #DietitianProTip.

“Dietitians work in a surprising diversity of roles in Canada,” reveals Kate Comeau, dietitian and spokesperson for Dietitians of Canada. “Some work directly with patients to help them make small changes towards better health while others work with government, in research, with industry and in the community to support these changes. We hope to showcase this diversity and celebrate the contributions of our members.”
