Via a special calendar, Nutrition and Food Services offered daily health messages, activities on foods or nutrients and links to educational material.  They also prepared a Nutrition Month newsletter for the EMSB community, which touched on this year's theme from Dietitians of Canada called "Ingredients for a Healthy Future." 

During the month cooking workshops were held at different schools. We include photos here from Gerald McShane Elementary School in Montreal North.
