Evidenced-based advice to help you this nutrition month

It’s no secret that a well-balanced diet is important to our health and well-being, especially as we age. Proper nutrition helps maintain strength, mobility and a good quality of life. But making better choices about what we eat can be hard since we are constantly being bombarded by new, and often conflicting, information. When it comes to nutrition (and your health), evidence-based advice is key.

It’s never too late to make better food choices. Check out our evidence-based resources below to help you get started.
