Nutrition Month – Member Resources

The resources we develop each year make your opportunity of supporting the campaign a little easier. Want to help out in 2018? Connect with your Regional Representative.  Interested in some history on the campaign, we got that too!

The Nutrition Month 2017 campaign was dedicated to supporting Canadians to end their struggles with food. The slogan for the campaign was Take the Fight out of Food! Spot the problem. Get the facts. Seek support.

Locked Resources are for ‘Members Only’.

Nutrition Month is brought to you by Dietitians of Canada and thousands of dietitians across the country, in collaboration with the campaign sponsors. Our official sponsors for 2017 were Avocados from Mexico, Diabetes CanadaCanadian Lentils and Dairy Farmers of Canada.  Barley Council of CanadaCanadian Pork Council and Healthy Flax were fact sheet sponsors.

We are proud to name the following as our Official Nutrition Month 2017 Communications Ambassador Organizations:
