March is recognized by the Dietitians of Canada as Nutrition Month. During this month, let’s unlock the potential of food by eating with nutrition in mind. Eating whole grains for your body’s proportions, according to Canada’s Food Guide can help to increase our consumption of fibre, vitamins and minerals. Eating foods that are high in fibre can help to reduce our risk of stroke, colon cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
