NRC 2016 FORUM - HEALTHY EATING IN TODAY'S FOOD ENVIRONMENT . . . IS IT POSSIBLE?
Welcome to NRC's 2016 Annual Forum!

We live in a challenging food environment. Unhealthy food is everywhere: in our local supermarkets, our children's schools, our workplaces, restaurants, and entertainment venues. These foods are often cheaper, more accessible and attractive than healthier options. Eating a healthy diet can be an uphill struggle for many Canadians in such an environment. Can this be changed? Can we create healthier food environments? How can we promote healthy eating among the public and our clients?

Together, we will explore the answers to these questions; how we can help the public navigate the current food environment and transform it to promote healthy eating.

The NRC forum is being held in conjunction with the Ontario Society of Nutrition Professionals in Public Health's 2016 Nutrition Exchange conference.

What do we mean by "healthy" food environment? (Marlene Schwartz, UConn Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity)
We all want an environment where healthy eating is possible and easy for our clients, patients, the public, and ourselves. But what would such an environment look like? What do we mean by "healthy" and how would a healthy food environment balance the values of health and choice? This opening session will reflect on potential answers to these important and provocative questions.

How can we transform food environments to make healthy eating possible? A review of the science (Leia Minaker, Propel Centre for Population Health Impact)

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.

Are healthy eating and body weights possible for children? Findings of a new Report Card on Healthy Food Environments and Nutrition for Children and Youth (Kim Raine, University of Alberta)

Poor nutrition and obesity are major health concerns among Canada's children and youth. Do food environments support or hinder efforts to promote healthy eating and prevent obesity among young people?

This session presents the findings of Canada's first-ever Report Card on Healthy Food Environments and Nutrition for Children and Youth. The Report Card assesses how current environments and policies support or create barriers to improving children's dietary behaviours and body weights.   By assigning  grades of A through F to 41 indicators of policies and actions within 4 micro-environments (physical, communication, economic, social) and within the political macro-environment, the Report Card aims to increase public, practitioner and policymaker awareness of the relevance and status of food environments for children and youth, and to support and develop enhanced programming and policies in areas that require further action.  Participants will learn how the Report Card is a novel tool to monitor children's food environments and supportive policies, inform stakeholders, and engage discussion. Possibilities for creating local Report Cards through use of a tool kit and to enable action on childhood obesity will also be explored.

Community initiatives to help clients, patients and the public overcome a challenging food environment
This concurrent session features examples of how dietitians can support the creation of healthier food environments and help their clients, patients, or the public navigate the current food environment.


Guys Can Cook! Best Practices: Nutrition Games, not Hunger Games!
Guys Can Cook! Project (GCC Project) is cross-sectoral partnership involving seven community health centers. The project is funded by Ontario Trillium Foundation to deliver series of capacity building and skills development workshops to male youth ages 13 to 18 in seven neighbourhoods according to community health centres catchment areas. Guys Can Cook! workshops include food skills, nutrition education and job search preparedness components. Over the past two years GCC Project boasts over 100 graduates, 7 trained peer leaders and 14 programs delivered across seven neighbourhoods. Our graduates demonstrate improved culinary skills, increased knowledge about healthy eating practices and awareness about their food choices.


Let's Talk Food Lambton Community Food Assessment
A Community Food Assessment is currently underway in Lambton County. This presentation will discuss how local food system stakeholders collaborated to conduct an environmental scan, identify community food assets and gaps, and determine food-related priorities. These steps are informing the creation of recommendations for proposed action to improve access to healthy food, access to local food, and food knowledge and skills in Lambton County.


Souper Sisters
Souper Sisters is a innovative initiative of the Port Hope Community Health Centre that provides nutritious homemade soups made from excess freshly donated produce. In this session, participants will learn how a simple meal like soup has impacted clients and community of the Port Hope Community Health Centre, including creating a culture of wellbeing, expanded healthy eating choices for clients, and educational opportunities. Participants will be provided an overview of the logistics needed to initiate this project, barriers faced, and how this project has evolved over a two year period.

Making healthy eating possible: Social justice, food prices, and access
Making Healthy Eating Possible - A social justice issue?

It is often said that we seek to make "the healthy choice the easy choice." But is the healthy choice possible for all Ontarians? Could it be that current policies and environments favour healthy eating among certain individuals or groups while disadvantaging others? If so, what can we do about this? Join Dr. Catherine Mah as she explores these questions using the lens of health equity: equalizing health opportunities for all regardless of social status or circumstance. You will also learn how the concept of health equity impacts your work to transform the food environment and promote healthy eating.



Accessing healthy food in the modern lifestyle: The link between transportation, shopping habits and healthy eating

 

Eating a healthier diet is often not as simple as choosing to eat healthier foods. The pressures and demands of modern life require suitable and convenient access to healthy, affordable food to enable healthy food choices. When grocery stores and other vendors that sell healthy foods are not easily accessible by car, active transportation, or public transit, the ability to eat healthy is hindered. Furthermore, current transportation systems and policy may preclude certain groups of people to eat healthy. In this session, you will explore the intersection of transportation, time use, the food environment, and healthy eating. You will learn about the importance of considering transportation and shopping habits in your efforts to help clients and the public to eat healthy and transform the food environment.

Appetype- Using technology to promote mindful eating
In this session, participants will learn about Appetype, an online app that promotes mindful eating by using a daily quote to coach clients to a more holistic and goal oriented approach that doesn't focus on outcomes. It encourages behaviour change through the nourishment and physical activity journals using language to coach a mindful approach.

Given Ontario’s rich agricultural sector, there is an opportunity to use a ‘food-first’ approach to promote nutrition and healthy aging. This presentation will share the development of an evidence-based resource to promote older adult’s consumption of nutrient-dense Ontario agriculture. The resource was created by a research team at University of Guelph and Agri-food for Healthy Aging, Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging. The resource features over 50 recipes and highlights the evidence-based age-related health benefits of the Ontario-grown foods, strategies to make preparation easier, and testimonials from older adults and Ontario farmers.
