What is the best approach to healthy eating, and who should one seek out for nutrition advice with the overload of information and advice found on the web?
According to Karla Dawdy, Nephrology Dietitian at Toronto General Hospital, a healthy diet may require something different based on your unique requirements.
"If you are looking for guidance to meet your individual health goals, then you should talk to a specialist," she recommends.
A Registered Dietitian is your best bet for current, relevant and trusted nutrition information, according to Karla. Dietitians have years of specialized training in food and nutrition as well as chemistry, biology and physiology, which provide the necessary and unique skills to deliver expert nutrition advice.
This Nutrition Month your UHN Dietitians and Clinical Diet Technicians have some exciting prizes and activities planned.
