OHEA members were encouraged to bring feminine hygiene products to #OHEA2017 to help support Tampon Tuesday. We were very touched by the positive response and would like to thank all conference delegates for their generous donations.
On March 29th, OHEA President Cindy Hartman, P.H.Ec., delivered two large boxes full of feminine hygiene products to the London Food Bank on behalf of OHEA.
OHEA would like to take this opportunity to thank our generous conference sponsors. Without their support #OHEA2017 would not have been possible.
On March 25th at the Holiday Inn Guelph Hotel and Conference Centre, the Ontario Home Economics Association (OHEA) hosted their 38th annual conference ‘The Transformation of Home Economics – What does the future hold?’ The full day event attracted Professional Home Economists, Dietitians, Nutritionists, bloggers, entrepreneurs and university students from Brescia, Guelph and Ryerson.

For the health of it - Canola oil is a good source of vitamins E and K and is packed with omega 3 fats. Omega 3 fats are an anti-inflammatory that can help protect against heart attacks and strokes. Our bodies don’t produce omega 3 fats, so we need to get them from food.
It also has the lowest amount of saturated fats—half that of olive oil. Saturated fats are the fats linked to heart disease.
For the Taste of it – It’s neutral flavour and light taste makes it great for baking and cooking. When you add herbs and spices, canola oil absorbs the flavours making it very versatile.
For the Heat of it – Canola oil is great to use on the barbeque because it has a high heat tolerance (as high as 242 C/468 F.) Other oils break down and lose their nutritional value at high temperatures. Don’t be afraid to fire up the grill—it can take the heat!
It’s Canadian – Grown for you by over 43,000 family farmers on the Canadian Prairies. It’s your local Canadian choice.
