Eating in Ontario, what do we know?
Date: Thursday June 17th at 2-2:45pm EST
Watch this webinar to hear about the findings of two new reports warning of the long-term health risks, and the potential impacts on our healthcare system if steps are not taken to address unhealthy eating trends and strengthen food literacy in Ontario. In this presentation, we will discuss nutrients of concern, trends in vegetable, fruit and beverage intakes, and policy actions needed to improve eating behaviours.
