Dieticians, Nutritionists, and Nutrition Consultants

Dieticians, Nutritionists, and Nutrition Consultants:

  • plan and develop school board food policy and the food and nutrition education programs;
  •  advise the boards on food and nutrition matters in the schools
  • draft documentation and develop standards for the quality of food services to be offered in the establishments.

For example, it is partly thanks to their work that students:

  • have access to healthy meals as per Canada’s Food Guide;
  • have access to food services meeting the highest hygiene standards;
  • are informed as to what constitutes a healthy diet.
