Nutrition Month – March 2017
Take the Fight out of Food! Spot the problem. Get the facts. Seek support.
The Nutrition Month 2017 public campaign is dedicated to supporting Canadians to stop their struggles with food. The slogan for the campaign is Take the fight out of food! Spot the problem. Get the facts. Seek support. Every year we choose a campaign theme based on input from members and consumers. The goal of the campaign is to provide information and guidance to make it a little easier for Canadians to end their fight with food.
Dietitians in communities and workplaces across the country will host events during March. You can learn about events by accessing the Canada Activity Map. We encourage community leaders and other health professionals to get connect with your local dietitian and plan events too.
Member resources are available. Resources for the public are available now to plan your own Nutrition Month activities.
Note: Dietitians of Canada does not produce a campaign poster. If you are interested in a poster visit dairynutrition.ca/2017 to order.
