Family Food Literacy: Implications for Diet and Household Food Waste
Date: Tuesday, February 25, 2020
Time: 12:00 - 13:00 ET
Speaker: Jess Haines, PhD, RD
This webinar will present the results from the Family Food Skills Study, which examined how aspects of parental food literacy are associated with level of household food waste and dietary intake of parents and children. Implications of these findings for family-level interventions will be discussed.
Following this webinar, participants should be able to:
- Identify current estimates of food literacy and household food waste among Canadians
- Describe how parental food literacy is associated with level of household food waste and dietary intake among both parents and children
- Discuss next steps regarding family-level interventions designed to improve dietary intake and reduce household food waste
