Eating in Ontario Reports
Eating in Ontario: What Do We Know? Vegetable and fruit consumption, food insecurity, self-rated health, and physical activity based on CCHS 2017 and implications related to COVID-19 (PDF)
This report reveals the troubling depths of food insecurity among female lone-parent households, Indigenous populations, and low-income Ontarians. It also identifies the degree to which too many Ontarians are not being sufficiently nourished, and face challenges feeding their families. This is due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic contributing to mental health concerns and increasing risk of serious long-term health complications including chronic diseases such as diabetes.
