  • Where can I find information and resources for Nutrition Month?

    Nutrition Month has been planned and delivered by Dietitians of Canada each March for more than 30 years. The goal of the campaign is to provide information and guidance to make it a little easier for Canadians to choose, eat and enjoy healthy food. Dietitians of Canada members across the country are involved in promoting the campaign and hosting events in their communities.

    Every year we choose a campaign theme based on the needs of Canadians, with input from our members. The theme for 2019 is Unlock the Power of Food and represents how dietitians help Canadians realize the potential of food to fuel, discover, prevent, heal and bring us together. 

    Visit our Nutrition Month website for more information and resources – including handouts, tips, activities, and recipes. 

  • Where do I find information about iron, fibre, infant nutrition, etc.?

    Please visit the award winning UnlockFood.ca for easy to understand and current resources on food, nutrition, healthy eating and disease prevention.  

  • I'm looking for personalized nutrition advice.

    Some provinces (British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario) offer call centres where you can speak with a dietitian at no charge. Dietitians are there to provide answers to your nutrition and healthy-eating questions, Note: this service does not replace advice from your medical doctor or individual counselling with a dietitian. 

    To find a dietitian near you for private consultation (fee based), use our Find a Dietitian tool and search by name, location or keyword. Many employee health insurance plans offer coverage for dietitian services. Ask your health insurance provider. 

    You can also talk to your family physician about seeing a dietitian for your specific concern. Some communities have dietitians available as part of primary health care, community health or family health teams. Visit UnlockFood.ca for more information.
