About Nutri-eSTEP

The Nutri-eSTEP tools were developed by registered dietitians and university researchers in Canada. The tool collects some basic information that is grouped together with other users’ information to track the nutritional health of children in B.C. Your answers are completely anonymous. While this tool is not intended to replace professional health advice, it will help identify if you would benefit from consulting your health care provider or a registered dietitian for further assessment and support.
