Celebrate spring on Sunday, April 1 at the Annual Nutrition Fun Walk and Run.
The free, five-kilometre event starts at the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex at 11 a.m. and travels gently through the residential neighbourhoods of the city.
The Nutrition Run is a great opportunity to load up your stroller or bicycles and bring your children along.
Families and friends will enjoy the nutritious refreshments and fabulous prizes.
March is Nutrition Month and the city is promoting healthy eating through the annual event.
This year’s Nutrition Month theme is dedicated to busting up popular food and nutrition myths.
Nutrition information has never been more accessible than it is right now.
The Internet and social media are exploding with nutrition advice, which can also bring about confusion and partial truths that are often not based on the real facts.
Some myths seem to hang on forever (the high protein diet) while new popular myths pop up (gluten free is the way to be) as food and nutrition trends change.
Dietitians are a credible source for the most current thinking on food and nutrition that can help set the record straight.
“Get the Real Deal from Dietitians” and visit Nutrition Month at www.dietitians.ca to get the truth on 39 most popular and common nutrition myths.
Tatjana Bates, dietitian from Interior Health, invites Williams Lake to visit the nutrition booth and join in on the fresh air and fun.
