Do you know what will solve food insecurity? Hint: it’s not reduced food waste.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United
Nations has defined “food security” as existing when
“all people, at all times, have physical and economic
access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet
their dietary needs and food preferences for an active
and healthy life.”
In Canada, the absence of food security is “food
insecurity” – Not all Canadians
are able to afford enough food for themselves,
their partners, and children. In 2012, one in every eight
Canadian households experienced food insecurity.
Megan the cookie loving dietitian took some time out of her busy day to share her opinions on food security and food wastage with me.
She wants you to know that if you don’t have semi-sweet chocolate chips you should probably buy some before attempting to bake cookies with 85% dark chocolate or you might end up with a very bitter cookie.
Healthy eating for all, nutrition, physical activity this administrative dietitian explains it all.
