March is Nutrition Month and Northern Health would like to see how everyone eats together.
Organize a date to eat together – this could mean grabbing a coffee and scone with a colleague, organizing a lunch date with a friend, having a potluck with family – whatever this means to you.
Set a date, eat together, and show Northern Health and you could also win an Instant Pot.
Eating together has so many benefits. It brings us together and allows us to celebrate each other, our relationships, and the food we’re sharing. It also helps create social connectedness which is good for our overall health!
* take a photo of you eating together with someone.
* include a caption of what eating together means to you.
You can also mail the photo to Mail Health Promotions #810 – 299 Victoria Street, Prince George, BC V2L 5B8.
On March 14 Northern Health will also host a Facebook live chat with a panel of two dietitians.
This a great opportunity to ask questions and learn more about important nutrition topics. Topics to be covered could include:
* tips for meal planning
* planning around dietary restrictions
* feeding infants and children
* exploring the new 2019 Canada’s Food Guide
