Healthy eating is a key part of leading a healthy life. Eating nutritious food gives us energy, promotes wellness, and prevents chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. The Health Unit offers a range of nutrition programs, resources, and services to promote healthy eating throughout the lifespan and create supportive nutrition environments in the community.

The Health Unit supports the public in making healthier food choices for themselves, their families, and their community. We collaborate with community partners to provide education, skill building, environmental supports and policy development with regards to food, as a way to prevent chronic disease and promote wellness.
