Healthy Eating and Nutrition
Healthy eating and nutrition programs and counselling are led by Bridges CHC's Registered Dietitian. Programs are designed to support and improve:
awareness of healthy, well-balanced eating
label reading and meal planning
and food skills to prepare quick, tasty, low-cost meals.
Nutrition counselling is available to clients of Bridges CHC to learn more about Canada's food guide, your relationship with food and the potential of food to improve your mental and physical health.
