Check Out The Brand New Sobeys Nutrition Breaks To Learn More About The Food You’re Putting Into Your Body!
How would you rate your nutrition knowledge? Before you answer - check out our brand new Sobeys Nutrition Breaks!

Our friends at Sobeys want to make nutrition accessible for Special Olympics athletes, coaches, volunteers, families and caregivers, so they created eight bite-size nutrition sessions. Topics range from Canada’s Food Guide to Hydration and Healthy Eating on the Go.
Whether you’re already a nutrition expert, or could use some help, each Nutrition Break is equipped with a lesson plan and worksheets, so you can easily – and effectively – share the information with your teammates, family and friends.

Click the link below, download the lesson plans and worksheets and share what you’ve learned with your community!
Dietitians Rebecca and Veronique will be bringing back the Wellness Wednesday Facebook Lives to help promote the Sobeys Nutrition Breaks. Taking place every other Wednesday on Special Olympics Canada’s Facebook page.

Start Date: Wednesday, October 21

End Date: Wednesday, December 16 (this would be 5 total, 1 every two weeks)

Time: 7:00 pm Eastern Time
