Capital Health dietitians celebrate Nutrition Month

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 - 2:38pm

Nutrition Month is alive and well across Capital Health.

In almost every cafeteria or lobby, you can learn how to not only eat healthier, but also plan and shop more sensibly as well.

March 20, 2013 marks the fourth anniversary of Dietitians Day. It spotlights the profession and reminds us that dietitians are the smart choice for advice on proper eating, good nutrition and healthy living. It celebrates dietitians as health care professionals, committed to using their specialized knowledge and skills in food and nutrition to improve the health of Canadians.

Dietitians Day also raises the profile of dietitians and helps encourage and attract others to this worthy, satisfying and respected profession.

A few of Capital Health's many dietitians took a minute out of their busy schedule recently.
