We’ve all been there. You’re feeling constantly bloated and gassy, your child won’t eat anything but fruit and your dad is mismanaging his diabetes. Yet making the trip to see a healthcare professional seems overwhelming and time consuming. So you take matters into your own hands and turn to your smartphone to start searching for solutions online.

When looking for answers about what foods are best for themselves and their families, almost half (49%) of Canadians turn to the internet. Unfortunately not everything you read online comes from a credible news source and do-it-yourself (DIY) diagnoses can add to the fight, or even be dangerous.

Whether the ‘food fight’ is with themselves or with others, dietitians want to remind Canadians that eating should be joyful, not a source of everyday frustration and confusion!

March is Nutrition Month and this year Dietitians of Canada wants to help Canadians Take the Fight out of Food with a simple three-step approach: Spot the problem. Get the facts. Seek support. With accurate information and a good support system, Canadians will be better equipped to make decisions about food – without the fight.

Join Canadians this Nutrition Month and Take the Fight out of Food at www.NutritionMonth2017.ca.  There you will find more information on how you can manage your food fight and how to find a dietitian in your area to help improve your relationship with food, no matter what the struggle. For recipe ideas to help you Take the Fight out of Food, you can download Cookspiration, a free app from Dietitians of Canada.
