Food and Mood
Join us for a mindful exploration of healthy eating and how our relationship with food can affect our mood. This is an interactive program that combines relaxation and mindfulness meditation exercises with practical nutrition knowledge. With the help of a Registered Dietitian we will learn how to translate Canada’s Food Guide into a useful nutrition tool, learning ways to pace and plan meals and integrate healthy snacks, and about the importance of regular exercise for optimal health and academic performance.
