Join the conversation on Facebook every Tuesday in March to celebrate Nutrition Month and share your suggestions. Public Health Nutritionists at the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit are Registered Dietitians, a regulated health profession, and we welcomed the release of Health Canada’s new Food Guide. The plate model is one we’ve been using to explain the parts of a healthy eating pattern. Our work with schools, community and the media is in line with new Food Guide messages such as the importance of enjoying our food, cooking at home more often, eating with others and sharing the responsibility for healthy food environments.
