Dietitians of Canada is excited to announce the launch of Nutri-eSTEP at www.nutritionscreen.ca
Dietitians of Canada, and the staff of EatRight Ontario, have worked with the University of Guelph to bring the NutriSTEP® nutrition screening questionnaires for preschoolers (3-5 years) and toddlers (18-35 months) online. The valid and reliable nutrition screening tools have been used by service providers across Canada for several years, and have been beneficial in helping service agencies identify needs in their community and provide education and counseling to parents. NutriSTEP® has been used in acute care, primary care, and public health settings.
Launching the Nutri-eSTEP online tool means that more parents across Canada can benefit from the screening tool. In less than 10 minutes, parents or a caregiver can complete the online questionnaire, receive immediate feedback on “What is Going Well” and “What to Work On”, and be linked to healthy eating resources and community services.
