Nutrition counselling is designed to provide clients with nutritional guidance and support. All nutritional evaluations and counselling sessions are conducted by a registered dietitian or a dietetic intern overseen by a registered dietitian. Registered dietitians are licensed by the Ordre professionnel des diététistes du Québec (OPDQ) and are members of Dietitians of Canada. Receipts are provided for medical insurance and income tax purposes.

The following services include the use of an online food journal, with the services of the dietitian who will be able to access your food journal and provide feedback during the appointment.

Nutritional evaluation

This stand-alone appointment is ideal if you are comfortable adjusting your eating habits on your own, and you would like feedback on your current habits that take into account a review of your medical history, medications and symptoms.

Follow-up nutritional appointment

Your nutritional habits are re-assessed by reviewing your current food habits. Results from your nutritional evaluation or the previous appointment are further discussed and you will collaboratively establish goals and habits to help you achieve your goal.

Individual nutrition packages

Packages consist of:

  • 3 appointments: a 1-hour nutritional evaluation and feedback appointment, and two follow-up nutritional appointments (45 minutes each)
  • 1 food journal monitoring feedback (value of 20$ each)
  • 2 meal preparation classes (2 hours each)

Participants may choose to focus on: eating habits for managing chronic conditions like high blood pressure (DASH diet) or cholesterol; diabetes; gastrointestinal conditions; active lifestyle and sports nutrition; or life stage changes.
