Exploring Food and Eating Trends in Ontario Families

Date: December 15th, 2020

About the Event:

Nutrition Connections, with support from The Helderleigh Foundation, worked with Ipsos, a global market and research and public opinion firm, to track food and eating behaviour trends in families with children under the age of 18.  This webinar provides a snapshot of Ontario families’ food and eating trends and examines how they compared with families outside of the province. The highlights discussed include:    

  • What families are eating and drinking for meals and snacks 
  • Where and how families are eating and sharing meals 
  • How families are shopping and preparing meals 
  • What is driving family food choices  

This information is helpful to anyone planning programs or interventions targeted to families with children and youth. 

Who should attend? 

Program planners, policy makers, marketers/food industry, health professionals, health promoters, community health practitioners, educators, child care providers, researchers, and others.
