Food sustainability is an important consideration in dietetic practice. Canadian dietitians have been working on defining Sustainable Food Systems (SFS) and diets, how they relate to dietetic practice and our strategic role.
In this recording, our speakers present the rational and position on SFS and diets, and how the position applies to professional practice. Examples of perspectives and applications from nutrition and dietetic practice are included, and listeners are encouraged to think about their own relevant applications of the evidence and position to build an understanding of how to translate key principles into actionable steps for a variety of clients, including households, communities, policymakers, and industry.
