Nutrition information has never been more accessible than right now; millions of Canadians have ready and easy access to the Internet and other forms of social media. But not all the information is credible; myths and misinformation abound. Nutrition Month 2012 is dedicated to busting up popular food and nutrition myths by bringing truths to Canadians from dietitians, the food and nutrition experts.

Saskatchewan is celebrating Nutrition Month with a 5-week Nutrition Challenge. Each week a myth, truth, and challenge will be provided and posted on the Ask A Dietitian Saskatchewan Facebook® page (http://www.facebook.com/AskaDietitianSK). Dietitians will have locations set up across the province to collect weekly ballots and discuss the myth, truth, and challenge with participants. In North Battleford, there will be a booth set up every Saturday morning in March at Territorial Place Mall from 10 am to 12 pm. You can find out about the 5-week challenge, learn about nutrition myths and truths, get answers to food and nutrition questions and meet local dietitians. If you are unable to get to a dietitian location you can ‘like' the Ask A Dietitian Saskatchewan Facebook® page and share your nutrition-challenge results to be entered for the Saskatchewan grand prize (to be drawn April 6).

Stop by our booth this Saturday morning at Territorial Place Mall and find out how you can participate in Nutrition Month 2012.
