Since I've been out of school for a while now, I thought it would give an interesting perspective to have my 2 summer volunteer students write about their tips for staying healthy as they enter their (demanding) 3rd and 4th year of the Honors Specialization in Nutrition & Dietetics program at Western University.
I get that many people consider breakfast to be their least favourite meal of the day, and often do not eat it. Whether they aren’t hungry that early, don’t have the time, or don’t like breakfast food, there are many excuses that prevent people from eating what’s arguably the most important meal of the day.
Grocery Store Field Trip: educating children on healthy eating habits through a fun, hands-on experienceNicole Korodetz
I recently had the opportunity to educate a grade 4 class about healthy eating for their age with a presentation and grocery store field trip. It was such a great experience, so wanted to share it with you!
Happy New Year! I hope that you had a wonderful holiday season, filled with quality family time, delicious food, and lots of relaxation. I’m sure that most of us (including myself) are still feeling a little sluggish after the holidays and trying to find the motivation to get back into an old or start a new healthy routine.
The holiday season is fully upon us and that means you have likely already attended a few parties, eaten a couple gingerbread cookies, and have been busy in the kitchen! Hosting a dinner or even preparing a potluck dish can be stressful having to accommodate every guest’s preferences and dietary restrictions.
Ah, the magical time of the year where coffee shops switch out their boring cups for red ones, create a winter wonderland atmosphere, and convince us to spend $6 on a holiday drink. While a Peppermint Mocha or Eggnog Latte may be exactly what you crave during those cold December days to lift your holiday spirits, they can pack in a ton of extra empty calories, fat and sugar.
I’m just a few days away from running the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Half Marathon with a fellow RD friend! All of our training, including early morning and evening runs, in the sweltering heat or cold rain, will be put to the test as we attempt to run 21km along Toronto’s lakeshore.
