Healthy Living in the North

Take the Nutrition Month challenge

March is Nutrition Month!

Join us in celebrating this year’s theme: “Unlocking the Potential of Food ”. Food is more than fuel and nutrients – it also brings us together! You can make this happen in many ways: eating a meal with friends and family, sharing a snack with your kids at the ski hill, or cooking a cozy meal for one. Learn more about Nutrition Month and food’s potential to bring us together.
