Nutrition Suite

Nutrition suite

Introduction

The Nutrition Suite houses a Teaching Kitchen suitable for meal preparation classes or cooking demonstrations and a Metabolic Kitchen for the production of controlled meals. The nutrition activities can be coupled with the clinical analysis of bio-specimens, imaging (MRI, PET-CT, DXA, Ultrasound etc.), exercise testing in the Cardiopulmonary Suite, as well as exercise and sleep protocols. There is also the possibility to measure metabolic rate and absorption, in these ways the Nutrition Suite is perfectly designed for lifestyle intervention studies and transdisciplinary community services.

The Nutrition Suite has been used to support Research, Community and Education projects and provides the following services:

  • Nutrition counseling
  • Cooking classes and demonstrations
  • Interactive workshops
  • Nutrient analysis of menus and food journals
  • Meal preparation
  • Collection of dietary intake data

Our Team

Currently, in the Nutrition Suite, we are working on the application of the nutrition components of research projects and community programs for different target populations. Some examples of people that we have worked with include: young families at risk for type 2 diabetes, young athletes, our Stinger athletes, our John Molson School of Business Executive MBA participants, people living with chronic conditions and people making a lifestyle change…along with everyday active living enthusiasts! We also provide learning opportunities for nutrition and dietetic interns and volunteers.
