Eating should be joyful and pleasurable, but it can be a source of confusion and frustration for many people. This year’s Nutrition Month theme is “Take the Fight out of Food”, where we introduce a three-step approach:

  1. Spot the problem
  2. Get the facts
  3. Seek support

It is designed to help us improve our relationship with food. We will explore five different examples using this strategy: food fads, digestive woes, picky eating, stress and eating, and preventing or managing a chronic condition.
