In this webinar, Emily Truman from the University of Calgary will explore food literacy interventions from the perspective of implementation–specifically, the factors that may limit uptake–in order to shed light on how to improve the promotion of food literacy skills. We will also hear from Erin Beagle, Executive Director of Roots to Harvest, who will share her insights and experiences addressing barriers while implementing food literacy programs in children and youth. By attending this session, you will:
- Hear about the methodology used to identify barriers, and the findings of a comprehensive review of existing literature;
- Learn about the specific barriers to implementing food literacy at the individual, school and community level;
- Explore (and provide valuable feedback about) where these barriers intervene in the relationship between food knowledge, food attitudes and food behaviours, in order to better understand how to reduce their impact and promote food literacy.
