Nutrition Month, which happens every year in March, is a public awareness campaign that aims to share reliable, evidence-based information about nutrition, to promote the many benefits of healthy eating and to encourage individuals to seek nutrition advice from a registered dietitian.
This year builds on last year’s theme to unlock the potential of food. Food has the potential to enhance lives, improve health, inspire children, fuel activities and bring people together.
Food is so much more than just nourishment!
This Nutrition Month, Marathon Family Health Team (MFHT) would like to help you “unlock the potential of food” by encouraging you to participate in a nutrition challenge that aims to share education on the new Canada’s Food Guide. By participating in the challenge, you will gain knowledge about the different sections of the Food Guide and learn how to apply them to your life.
How does the challenge work?
The challenge will run from Monday, March 4th to Sunday, March 31st. Each week will have a theme that focuses on a different section of the Food Guide. There will be six daily challenges per week that you can choose to combine and/or complete in any order. The goal of the challenge is to complete as many daily challenges as possible throughout the month of March.
Additional information about the challenge will be posted on this page on a weekly basis.
