Dietitian Kayla Daigle has a passion for promoting health in the communities she serves, but one group in particular has touched her heart. Kayla has worked very closely with the First Nations community in Esgenoopetitj, and recently offered a popular eight-week prenatal program to 19 participants. “Since the start of the year we really wanted to get in shape. We had the exercise figured out, but had no idea how to eat better,” wrote one expectant mother. “Since starting the nutrition program at the store, we know how to make better choices, we feel better.” The program was so popular that Kayla will offer it again, and she is also planning postnatal sessions. “It’s a really fun, rewarding partnership,” she says. “I really enjoy helping customers take those nutrition recommendations and turn them into useable skills.” She also spreads the healthy lifestyle message on local radio and partners with public health nurses and diabetes organizations.
