Sustainable Diets and Canada’s Food Guide Webinar, Food Secure Canada

Online
November 29, 2016

1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EST

Sweden, Brazil, Qatar and Germany have integrated sustainability principles into their national dietary guidelines. With the recently announced revision of Canada’s Food Guide, we have a strategic opportunity in Canada to do the same. Health Canada is undertaking an initial 45-day consultation with Canadians and stakeholders on Canada's Food Guide until December 8, 2016 (http://www.healthycanadians.gc.ca/health-system-systeme-sante/consultati...). Input received will be used to develop new dietary guidance tools that better meet the needs of different audiences.

If you are interested in participating in the consultation this webinar will be a great primer on sustainable diets that promote both human and environmental health. Panelists include:

  • Cecilia Rocha, Ryerson University
  • Barbara Seed, PhD, MPH, RD
  • Fiona Yeudall, Ryerson University
  • Pat Vanderkooy, Dietitians of Canada
  • Jennifer Reynolds, Food Secure Canada (facilitator)
