The month of March is celebrated each year by Canadian dietitians and various health conscious Canadians as Nutrition Month.
A dietitian alters their patient's nutrition based upon their medical condition and individual needs. Dietitians are regulated healthcare professionals licensed to assess, diagnose, and treat nutritional problems.
Once a year, a special day is dedicated to dietitians across Canada. It celebrates dietitians as regulated health care professionals, committed to using their specialized knowledge and skills to translate the science of nutrition into terms everyone can understand to unlock food’s potential and support healthy living for all Canadians.
This year that day falls on March 20th. Which is why I published this story on that day. Happy Dietitian Day!
