For Kids

Get your back to school game on

It’s every parent’s three favourite words. Back. To. School.

So long to the “I’m bored!” and “There’s nothing to do!”s of summer. With the comfort of the fall routines returning, so too comes the dreaded school lunch, but fear not because we’ve got tips and recipes to save you time and effort this school season.

Pro-tip: Keep a stash of hard-cooked eggs on hand. These are great to pair with some veggies and use for lunches or can be eaten on their own as a snack!

Watch Registered Dietitian Shannon Crocker explain why eggs are such a great snack!

Cooking 101: Getting Started in the Kitchen

The best way to eat well and save money on food expenses is to learn to cook, which means you're in control of what ingredients you eat!

Homemade pet treats for the fur baby in your life

Good nutrition is as important for pets as it is for people.

Treats can be a healthy part of your dog, cat or horse’s diet…and they love them as much as we humans do. Most veterinarians recommend that treats make up no more than 10% of a pet’s diet. It is best to offer your pet only healthy, nutritious treats and avoid high fat or high sugar ones.
