Teacher’s Convention is just around the corner. This year Nutrition Services Registered Dietitians have applied to lead 2 sessions on February 22. A great opportunity to learn about some nutrition resources and answer any nutrition related questions you might have. See below for more information. Hope to see you there!
Session: Nutrition Myths Demystified
When: Thurs, February 22, morning (60 min)
Description: Learn ways to energize your body with snacks and meals while at work. Join an interactive session with Alberta Health Services Registered Dietitians as they discuss healthy eating ideas and tips for personal wellness. Find out the facts about common nutrition questions such as: “do I need supplements to be healthy?”, “is multi-grain the same as whole grain?”, and “are food labels difficult to use?” You will leave with a variety of healthy eating resources and tools to help you improve your diet.
We are partnering with EverActive Schools to be one of their concurrent sessions within their symposium.
