Welcome to the Healthy Families BC blog!

Our dietitians at Healthy Families BC are excited to talk with you about healthy eating and how to lead healthier lives! They live here and plan to touch on health issues that British Columbians face.

Registered dietitians Dean and Joanna are writing the first few blogs. Dean is a dietitian for HealthLink BC. He says he lives in a medium to large city located within the Cascadia region of the Pacific Northwest. We assure you he's in BC! Before he became a dietitian he completed a culinary apprenticeship at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary. Meantime, Joanna worked for ten years at HealthLink BC. The busy mom of two doesn't like to spend too much time in the kitchen and is always looking to make healthy but, easy meals! Our resident dietitian blogger is joining us within the coming weeks...so, stay tuned!

Starting June 27th through the first week of August, we're teaming up with the news crew at Global BC to broadcast stories across the province! Registered dietitian and Global TV Morning News contributor Melodie Yong is hosting a segment that includes stories ranging from what sodium is to low sodium snacks for kids. So be sure to watch Global BC.

First up is Dean's blog...Is the Salt Shaker Guilty as Charged? You might be surprised when you hear what he has to say about sodium!

We're also happy to hear from you and what's on your mind. Who knows, maybe one of your ideas will be featured in our blog. Meantime, we're handing it over to Dean for a little salt 101...and to get our conversation going...enjoy!

I saw the dietitian on Global TV speaking about sodium. I thought it was informative and well presented information.

I will not buy anything with MSG in it, but now it comes in different names. Why can the Food Agency not put a stop to MSG in foods. Campbells is one of the worse companies for having it in their products, but they still have the 'good for your heart' sign on the product.
