Healthy Food Environments in Recreation Settings

Co-presenters: Public Health Nutritionist Working Group of Saskatchewan and The Heart and Stroke Foundation

Recreation settings have the potential to influence the food and beverage choices of community members of all ages. They are an ideal location to promote healthy food environments as they already support physical activity and active lifestyles. Research shows that patrons want healthier options in recreation settings, but few facilities have committees and/or initiatives underway to help promote and provide healthier choices. This session provides information and action items to support committees, facilities, organizations and municipalities to provide healthy foods and beverages in recreation settings and to explore ways to move forward together to improve this key food environment in Saskatchewan.
