Healthy Knowledge

Can improving diet literacy reduce health inequality?

In many low income communities, there are persistent barriers to health and well-being. One of the most common causes of poorer health outcomes in communities is a lack of education on healthy diet and nutrition. We know poor nutrition literacy can decrease capacity for making healthy diet choices, and choosing a poor-quality diet results in poorer overall health outcomes.

The recently announced National Food Strategy aims to improve the diet for many of the poorest families. By making healthy food not only more accessible, but also providing the resources to equip families with the knowledge to make better diet choices, communities will be better placed to reduce health disparities.

This is a private roundtable in partnership with Ferrero.
