To make healthy diets easier and sustainable for Ontarians, we need to transform the food environment. Many ways to change the food environment to support health are being explored: increasing the availability of healthy foods in corner stores, taxation of foods and drinks that do not support health, menu labelling, regulating food marketing, altering municipal zoning bylaws, and many more. What does the science say about the effectiveness of these different options? This presentation will focus on intervention research and highlight effective strategies for transforming the food environment to promote healthier eating.
