BC Dairy Association’s nutrition education programs and materials are designed to help make healthy eating achievable for all. Developed by registered dietitians with expertise in education, it’s no surprise that these materials really work to help people eat well.
Starting with the early years, we train early childhood educators about how they can help children learn how to enjoy food and eat well.
Our nutrition education programs for the K-12 years make it easy to teach nutrition using BC’s new curriculum. Teachers everywhere in BC can participate in professional development sessions to get colourful materials and great ideas for making nutrition come alive in the classroom. Mini-food grants are available to enhance the learning experiences. See for yourself why teachers praise the materials for how easy they are to use and how enjoyable it becomes to teach nutrition and introduce food in a fun and positive way.
Our award winning nutrition education resources for adults will help you reach your healthy eating goals—whether you are trying to achieve a better overall balance, or are trying for something more specific, like getting more calcium or improving your fibre intake. Check out our displays to feature these materials at your community event.
