Our Dietitians have an extensive background in the application of food science combined with behavioural coaching to drive lifelong change towards a healthy approach to food.

  • Is this course going to teach me what Canada's Food Guide says?

    Canada's Food Guide, which was updated a few years ago, is mentioned and used to influence our Balanced Plate Approach, but this course and dietitians offer so much more! If you are looking for professional development training on the NEW Food Guide, contact [email protected]. Canada’s Food Guide is a required resource for many professionals who are involved in food services such as long-term care and residential homes. Schools’ nutrition policies and curriculum must align with the recommendations as well. We have a turnkey solution to help professionals understand and navigate the significant changes, such as updated food groups that, for example, exclude dairy and the removal of portion guides.
