Nutrition Resource Centre 2015 Forum: "Eat Less, Eat Better"...Is It That Simple? Rethinking Our Obesity Message

Toronto, Ontario
April 28, 2015

8:30 a.m.
Westin Harbor Castle
Hosted by the Ontario Public Health Association's Nutrition Resource Centre and held in conjunction with the 4th Canadian Obesity Summit, this one-day event will explore how health promotion and nutrition professionals can enhance healthy eating and obesity messaging. Participants will learn how the culturally diverse beliefs and perceptions about food and weight in Ontario, the influence of the food environment on eating behaviors and obesity risk, and the multi-factorial nature of obesity should inform obesity messaging. Through presentations from leading obesity and nutrition experts and engaging discussions and debate, participants will be challenged to critically rethink conventional strategies for communicating about healthy eating and obesity to the public.
