Nutrition Education & Consulting

Nutrition Education &  Consulting

Our aim is to help children optimize their nutrition by supporting their adults - their parents, caregivers and educators.

We take a food- and body-positive, skills-based approach that aims to improve children's food and eating knowledge, attitudes and habits to encourage eating well for life!

NEC is working hard to create grade-specific lesson plan activities that support the CDEFs of nutrition education. Stay tuned for more lesson plan activities to support your teaching in the 2019-2020 school year!

Canada’s New Food Guide: What Educators Need to Know Part 1

 

Canada’s Food Guide is meant to guide our eating patterns and food choices. It also acts as an important tool to help students learn about eating well, as it is a key component in the Ontario Health and Physical Education Curriculum. What do the recent changes to the Food Guide mean for you as an educator? Read our recent blog post to learn more about Canada’s new Food Guide.

As of June 24, 2019, Canada’s New Food Guide is now available in 28 languages. Be sure to use the version(s) that reflect the language(s) spoken in your school community.
