During Nutrition Month 2022, dietitians will explore the key “ingredients” needed to change our food systems for a healthier tomorrow. These ingredients will take the form of actions that can improve an individual’s health in addition to systemic changes that can be made, not just for today, but for the future.
Dietitians of Canada will focus on one specific issue: Sustainable Food Systems
. Individual dietitians will be encouraged to explore other related “ingredients'' that fit with their interests or practice areas. You might see dietitians talking about topics like food sovereignty, food justice, food policy, combating misinformation etc.-- all towards a healthier tomorrow.
“Dietitians want to create a healthier tomorrow with their patients, clients and communities - through awareness, advocacy and action. We are influencing change across all areas of food, nutrition and health.”

The theme for Nutrition Month 2022 was developed through a series of conversations with Dietitians of Canada members over the summer and informed by research. We hope this is a theme that resonates with you!
