TORONTO, ON — March is Nutrition Month and Dietitians of Canada is challenging Canadians to Take a 100 Meal Journey by pledging to make a small change to their eating habits and to stick with it, one meal at a time. The national 2015 Tracking Nutrition Trends survey revealed a significant 35 per cent drop in people who made a change to improve their eating habits between 2013 and 2015. This March, dietitians want to reverse this trend and inspire Canadians to make a small change to improve their health.
Half of Canadians (52%) over the age of 20 live with a chronic disease like diabetes or heart disease and four out of five are at risk, with diet and lifestyle being major factors. Dietitians of Canada is determined to see a reduction in these numbers.
