Healthy Eating in Today's Food Environment . . . Is It Possible?

Healthy Eating in Today







We live in a challenging food environment. Unhealthy food is everywhere: in our local supermarkets, our children's schools, our workplaces, restaurants, and entertainment venues. These foods are often cheaper, more accessible and attractive than healthier options. Eating a healthy diet can be an uphill struggle for many Canadians in such an environment. Can this be changed? Can we create healthier food environments? How can we promote healthy eating among the public and our clients?

Join the Nutrition Resource Centre on May 11, 2016 as we explore together how we can help the public navigate the current food environment and transform it to promote healthy eating.

The NRC forum is being held in conjunction with the Ontario Society of Nutrition Professionals in Public Health's 2016 Nutrition Exchange conference.

About Nutrition Exchange 2016
Novotel Hotel Toronto Centre l May 12 - 13, 2016
