MAKE SENSE OF THE FOOD YOU EAT
(Brampton) - Are you puzzled by nutrition myth-information? Do you think eggs raise your cholesterol and carbohydrates are fattening? Peel Health will help you answer some of the most common nutrition-related questions at free nutrition presentations during the month of March.
March is nutrition month and this year's theme is Make Sense of the Food You Eat. According to Dieticians Canada, 56 per cent of Canadians say that they are tired of getting conflicting messages about what they should eat to be healthy.
"Today's wealth of information on nutrition is often confusing and conflicting," said Dr. David McKeown, Region of Peel Medical Officer of Health. "Our goal is to provide the public with reliable information to improve their eating habits."
Peel Health invites you to attend free nutrition presentations:
- March 19, at Albion-Bolton Community Centre, located at 150 Queen St. S., in Bolton, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.
- March 26, at Chinguacousy Wellness Centre, located at 995 Peter Robertson Blvd., in Brampton, from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.
- March 27, at Mississauga Central Library, located at 301 Burnhamthorpe Rd. W., in Mississauga, from 7 to 8 p.m.
Seating is limited. To reserve your seat, please call Health Line Peel at 905-799-7700.
