Exploring family-based strategies to shift attitudes, social norms and the food environment
Unpacking innovative strategies to shift attitudes, social norms and the food environment
Food literacy is so much more than just food skills and cooking. Learn how different population-based strategies can help shift attitudes and social norms about food and healthy eating.

The Guelph Family Health Study is a family-based study designed to identify early life predictors of chronic disease and examine the influence of interventions and policies on health behaviours among families with young children.  In this session, Dr. Haines will:
  1. Highlight the Integrated Knowledge Translation (iKT) strategies used to engage key knowledge users, i.e., parents, health professionals and policy makers, in the development and implementation of the Guelph Family Health Study, and
  2. Describe the strategies used to enhance food literacy among the parents and children participating in the study.
