Healthy Food in Health Care Principles Food supply can be met in a variety of ways which have consequences in terms of nutrition, disease risk, public health, environmental health, social and economic well being. Healthy food comes from a food system that is ecologically sound economically viable, and socially responsible.
Key health concerns in our industrialized food system • Widespread exposure to toxic chemicals • Antibiotic resistance • Food-‐borne illness • Environmental degradation • High levels of nutritionally-‐deplete foods Confined Animal Feeding Operations Overuse of Antibiotics Overuse of Antibiotics Chemicals Chemicals
Making Change Locally Institute of Medicine, 2009 “[P]arents and other adult caregivers play a fundamental role in teaching children about healthy behaviors…. But those positive efforts can be undermined by local environments that are poorly suited to supporting healthy behaviors.” Strategy 3: Community Food Access Promote efforts to provide fruits and vegetables in a variety of settings, such as farmers’ markets, farm stands, mobile markets, community gardens, and youth focused gardens.
