Effective Policies for Healthy Food Solutions: The Role of Public-Private Partnerships for Public Health

This project is in partnership with the Canadian Obesity Network. Human diet and nutrition have changed toward a diet dominated by increased food portions; low consumption of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, cereals, and legumes; and the increase in high consumption of foods rich in saturated fat, sugars and salt. As a result, societies have witnessed a dramatic increase in obesity and chronic diseases. The agri-food system cannot be missed in the battle of reducing this complex health problem.
