It began in the late 1970’s as a “Nutrition Week” with a small group of community dietitians. Local dietitians across several provinces then began planning events and activities in their workplaces, shopping malls, libraries and with the media.

In 1981, The Canadian Dietetic Association, now (Dietitians of Canada) and all the provincial dietetic associations jointly sponsored the first National Nutrition Week with the primary purpose of the campaign to increase public awareness about the importance of healthy eating.

The following year it was extended to a one-month campaign and the rest is history. That bring us to National Nutrition Month 2024 and gym owner Dan Maguet who stopped by to chat all things nutrition with CFAM Morning Show co-host Zack Driedger.

Dan is the owner, coach and trainer at Outland Health and Fitness, a commercial gym in Altona. Being a gym owner, nutrition is incredibly important in both his personal and professional life, and you can catch Zack & Dan's entire conversation below:
