The goal of the Nutrition Promotion team is to improve the nutritional health of the population in the Winnipeg Health Region by partnering with others to influence conditions that support and encourage healthy food choices.
Nutrition professionals in the Population and Public Health Nutrition Program work in partnership to promote healthy eating wherever people live, work or play. We use strategies to make the complex science of nutrition relevant and meaningful to people's lives.
Public Health Nutrition Professionals provide information and support on nutrition and food issues and promote healthy eating in our communities. They are also involved with Healthy Baby and Healthy Start for Mom and Me programs and infant feeding classes.
