Lunch and Learn - Eating Healthy in the Marketing Age

Are you confused and frustrated by conflicting messages about what food you should be eating? Keto is great for weight loss, but is it bad for your body? Avocados are full of healthy saturated fat, but are saturated fats bad for your heart? On and on, food messages can now be found all around us. Constantly receiving new and often conflicting information makes choosing healthy food choices more and more difficult. Marketing continues to get more technologically advanced as it tracks your personal data and online activities to deliver targeted ads.​

Attendees will get the chance to develop awareness of food marketing, as that is a food skill that will make way for healthier eating habits. Attendees will also learn how to find the most accurate and evidence-based nutrition information.

Eating healthy is more than just what is on your plate; being informed on current nutrition information is a piece of the puzzle.
