POWER UP! is pleased to present Alberta’s 2016 Nutrition Report Card on Food Environments for Children and Youth.
What is the Report Card?
The 2016 Report Card is the second annual assessment of how Alberta’s current food environments and nutrition policies support or create barriers to improving children’s eating behaviours and body weights.
How can we improve children’s well-being?
Poor nutrition and obesity are major health concerns facing Canadian children and youth. Our aim through this assessment is to increase public, practitioner and policymaker awareness of the relevance and status of food environments for children and youth, with a focus on health promotion and obesity prevention.
How can the Report Card improve children’s well-being?
The Report Card will serve as a tool for all levels of government and non-government organizations, researchers, corporations and foundations to support and develop enhanced programming and policies, as well as to identify areas that require further action and work.
