March: Nutrition Month
by Tazim

March is Nutrition Month in Canada, so I would like to show you a few websites which contain a lot of important and interesting information about eating well and staying healthy. You will see a section called Eating Well with Canada's Food Guide. You can actually build your own food guide by selecting the foods you eat.

There is a very helpful section which teaches you how to read nutrition labels so you know what you are consuming. I really like the Interactive Nutrition Quiz which tests how much you know about reading food labels. The section on Canada's Physical Activity Guides shows you how you can incorporate some physical activity in your daily life. All of this information about Nutrition Month gives you what you need to eat well and stay healthy.

National Nutrition Month
I came across another website which is also filled with current health related information. It is a very user-friendly site with a flashing message about current health and food issues where you can check about food safety, food recalls and home hazards.

Here are a few more useful websites that you can check out for yourself.

When you visit these sites, you will benefit by all the knowledge you get from there. I hope you will find them as useful as I did.
