Unlock the potential of food this Nutrition Month- March 2018!

Nutrition Month 2018 features the potential of food to fuel, discover, prevent, heal and bring us together — with the help of dietitians.

Food is nourishment, but it’s so much more. Food unites us at the dinner table and is the centre of holidays. Food is something you can teach children about to brighten their future. Food can improve health, prevent disease and keep us well for longer. At every touchpoint, food nourishes and inspires us. This is why dietitians love food and believe in its power to enhance lives and improve health.
