Take the Fight out of Food this Nutrition Month

21-03-2017
Do you ever get frustrated by food and nutrition? Maybe you can’t figure out why you feel bloated after eating certain foods, have family mealtimes that are mayhem or are unsure about which foods are best for a particular health condition. I call these “food fights” – they represent times when you struggle with yourself or others about what to eat.
 
 
Part of a Dietitian’s job is to coach people to calm these food fights, that is why it is super exciting that the Nutrition Month 2017 theme is “Take the Fight out of Food” – it’s exactly what Dieticians do every day!

Nutrition Month 2017’s campaign from Dietitians of Canada guides people through a three-step approach to improve their relationship with food, no matter what the struggle. Dietitians across the country will empower Canadians to:

  1. Spot the problem: Identify or define the specific nutrition problem that needs to be solved, since it’s causing a fight with food.
  2. Get the facts: Decide what needs to be done to solve the problem, using reliable and credible sources.
  3. Seek support: Put the plan into action with support from family, friends, a dietitian and other members of the health care team.
You can take action right now by committing to Take the Fight out of Food at: www.nutritionmonth2017.ca.
