Community Nutrition Program

Registered dietitians with the Community Nutrition Program support healthy eating, enjoyment of food, and positive eating behaviours, all of which promote healthy growth and development and prevent chronic disease.   

What services are provided?

Services for pregnant women

Individual and group-based prenatal nutrition education is available for pregnant women to help promote a healthy pregnancy.

Services for infants and children

Dietitians work with parents/guardians and families to provide information and skills needed to help infants and children grow in the way that is right for them, and to develop a healthy relationship with food.  

Family feeding classes are offered to provide information about how to feed toddlers and preschoolers, and to address any feeding challenges that might arise. For more information or to register for the next class in your area, contact the Community Nutrition Program. 

If you are unsure if your toddler or preschooler is eating well, you can complete the Online Nutrition Screening for Toddlers and Preschoolers.
