Quick Launch

Nutrition Month 2020 - ​More Than Food, How you eat is important too!

March is Nutrition Month and this year, Canadian dietitians are talking about how healthy eating is about so much More than Food! Dietitians are encouraging Canadians to consider not only what they eat, but how they eat too.

Dietitians counsel their patients, clients and communities on More than Food. We love food, yes, and we believe in its potential to enhance lives and improve health, but we take a broad view of the factors that impact healthy eating – including how we eat.

So what does that mean?This is an image of food with the heading "More than food"

  • Be mindful of your eating habits
    • Take time to eat 
    • Notice when you are hungry and when you are full 
  • Cook more often

    • Involve others in planning and preparing meals 
  • Enjoy your food
    • Culture and food tradit​ions can be a part of healthy eating
