Nutrition: Part of a Healthy lifestyle!
Recreation and leisure service providers are strong
advocates of healthy, active living so why are facilities full of unhealthy food? Is it their responsibility to
manage the food choices of facility users? How will guidelines and
policies around healthy food and beverage provision impact concession and vending contractors, or the community groups that
provide concession services as part of their sustainability? This
panel discussion provides insight into the Alberta Nutrition
Guidelines for Children and Youth, as well as a municipal
perspective regarding the challenges of implementing nutritional
guidelines in recreation facilities and services. Presented at the Alberta Recreation and Parks Association 2009 Annual Conference and Energize Workshop.
