March is Nutrition Month and in honor of this, your local Horizon Public Health Dietitians along with Dietitians of Canada are helping to support Canadians in taking the fight out of food. The slogan for the 2017 campaign is Take the fight out of food! Spot the problem. Get the facts. Seek Support.
Eating should be joyful, not a source of everyday frustration and confusion. Try this three-step approach:
1. Spot the problem. Define what’s causing your fight with food first.
2. Get the facts. Use facts from credible sources to decide what needs to be done to solve the problem.
3. Seek support. Put the plan into action with support from a dietitian, family and friends.
Check out www.NutritionMonth2017.ca to find all the resources. If you are looking for free apps to get you started, check out the “Get the Apps” link on this website. These apps are a convenient way to access dietitian expertise any time.
To promote ”environmental friendly action “ the CCS Me to WE student club will be accepting used plastic bags to be recycled and taken out of landfills. Participants are encouraged to collect the plastic bags in their home and bring them along. This will start the CCS campaign to collect and recycle plastic bags until Earth Day.
