Every year in March, dietitians across the country remind us of the importance of healthy eating and the positive impact nutrition has on our health and well-being.
Nutrition Month 2014 is dedicated to helping Canadians get cooking as we focus on food skills and preparation. The slogan for this year’s campaign is Simply Cook and Enjoy!
