Nutrition plays an important role in chronic disease prevention and management. We need food for energy to fuel our body and to provide the nutrients we need to stay healthy. However, many individuals face barriers to eating a balanced, healthy diet in today’s environment. Whether it is a lack of time to prepare healthy meals, uncertainty about how to cook with certain ingredients, or a limited budget for purchasing healthy food, there are many reasons why someone may struggle with making healthy food choices.
In addition, there is an increasing amount of nutrition advice information available through social media, newspapers, blogs and websites. Sometimes there is conflicting information about what we should be eating, making it hard to know where to turn for reliable, evidence-based advice.
The goal of our nutrition counselling services is to provide a supportive, non-judgmental environment to help individuals identify what a healthy diet might look like for them based on current evidence and discuss strategies for making realistic dietary changes based on the individual’s current situation.
