Policy directions to promote healthy dietary patterns in canada.
Sommaire de l'article
The effective promotion of healthy dietary patterns rests on a supportive policy environment. Given the vast, ever-expanding selection of foods in Canadian supermarkets and the proliferation of nutrition-related food marketing, more effective communication tools are needed to help consumers understand food selections within the context of a total diet. In addition, policy actions at the federal, provincial, and municipal levels are needed to lift economic and geographic barriers to food access for specific population subgroups.
