Eat, Move & Be healthy: A Nutrition Continuing Education Program

How’s your food fitness? If you’re not sure, or want to learn more – this program is for you!

Eat, move and be healthy, a nutrition program for Manitoba fitness leaders is a Continuing Education program designed specifically for MFC in partnership with the Registered Dietitians at Dairy Farmers of Manitoba*.

The course will address areas of interest and need identified in our nutrition survey last year. We will ensure your nutrition information is current by building a science-based foundation in the first part of the course (You’ll learn the reasons behind existing nutrition advice and review basic healthy eating by assessing your own food and nutrient intake). Once you have the basics, future modules will cover a variety of current food and nutrition issues.

Course material will be available to you in “modules”. It is available in print in a binder format that will allow you to keep all of the information in one place, or in a pdf that will be sent to you by email.

You will do personal learning activities as part of each module as well as submit an assignment for CEC credits at the end of each module. You must complete Modules 1 – 3 to participate in the rest of this program. You will receive 5 CEC credits for completing these 3 modules. Once you have these 5 credits, you are welcome to complete further modules in whatever order you wish!

How to register: Please contact the MFC office at 204-235-1245 or email,

Leaders can start the program at any time.
* MFC has worked with the Registered Dietitians at Dairy Farmers of Manitoba for 30 years to offer nutrition workshops and resources specifically designed to meet the need of fitness professionals.
