Nutrition Month
Nutrition Month is hosted annually by the Dietitians of Canada. This year's theme is 'Best Food Forward: Plan, Shop, Cook, Enjoy!' What you eat plays an integral role in your wellbeing, and directly affects your oral health. You can visit this link for some helpful tips and tools regarding nutrition and your health, and to learn more about Nutrition Month. As always, we encourage you to learn more about your health, and remember that the kitchen is a great place to try new things.

Until next month,
