About Diabetes Nutrition Support & Meal Planning

How do I make a meal plan? How many carbs are in this meal? Why is my blood sugar so high no matter what I eat? Our Registered Dietitian can help take the stress out of mealtimes and support you in making long lasting diet changes.

Work one-on-one with a Registered Dietitian who is trained in Medical Nutrition Therapy. Whether you’re looking to make a meal plan, boost energy levels, gain new skills in the kitchen, or need nutrition counselling, meeting with our Dietitian can help.

Initial and follow-up visits are offered in-person or online. Plan for an hour for the first visit. Follow-ups will vary in length depending on your goals. Learning to manage diabetes is complicated so you may need multiple visits to help achieve your goals.
