Nutrition Questions

Ask a Dietitian group appointments can help answer questions such as:

  • How can I shop on a tighter budget?
  • What are some ways to make my food last longer?
  • How do I reduce my salt intake?
  • I have diabetes. Should I eat fruit?
  • What should I look for on food labels?
  • How can I achieve my best weight?

“I found it very intriguing to hear what other people asked, and what I was able to learn from their questions. They asked things that I had never even thought of. It was a very rewarding experience.” ~ Cheryl Aitkens, three-time Ask a Dietitian participant
