Working with Grocers to Support Healthy Eating

Food Environment Supporting and promoting healthy eating within the food retail environment shows promise as a means to positively influence consumption of nutritious foods. Social and physical environments influence food choice. The efforts of many sectors, including food retail can help to create supportive environments to improve the nutritional health of Canadians. This report outlines trends influencing the food retail environment and consumer purchasing behaviour. It summarizes promising interventions from the literature and profiles experiences from Canadian programs to help us understand how the food retail environment could support healthy eating. The report also provides suggestions for program development, implementation, and evaluation.
