Dietitians of Canada is the national professional association for dietitians representing almost 6000 members across the country, including 300 members in Manitoba.
The association strives for excellence in advancing health through food and nutrition and the goal is to encourage all Canadians to eat well.
To increase public awareness about the importance of healthy eating and to promote dietitians as the experts in food and nutrition, Dietitians of Canada and hundreds of dietitians working here in Manitoba celebrate Nutrition Month every March. This year’s Nutrition Month theme is “Take the 100 Meal Journey”: Make small changes, one meal at a time.
WHEREAS The goal of National Nutrition month is to encourage all Canadians to eat well; and
WHEREAS Registered Dietitians are a trusted source of credible nutrition information and are launching a campaign focusing on helping consumers make healthier food choices; and
WHEREAS Canadians are interested in healthy eating and want information to help them achieve this goal – dietitians offer nutrition resources as well as interactive tools on the Dietitians of Canada website – www.dietitians.ca; and
WHEREAS To celebrate National Nutrition Month, local dietitians are planning a number of activities to reach Manitoba residents. The Manitoba Nutrition Month committee will be sharing nutrition information focusing on the theme of
‘Take the 100 Meal Journey’ via Facebook, Twitter, email and media coverage throughout the month. In addition, dietitians across Manitoba will be promoting Dietitians of Canada Nutrition Month in their work places and communities through various activities.
NOW THEREFORE BE IT KNOWN that I, Larry Johannson, Mayor of the City of Selkirk in the Province of Manitoba do hereby proclaim March 2016 to be Nutrition Month in Selkirk and commend its thoughtful observance to all citizens.
