Learning and teaching how to eat healthy

Nutrition has always been, and will always be, crucial for our health and well-being. However, eating healthy is not always so simple. Due to the pandemic and recent inflation, food is more expensive and less accessible. Today, food insecurity is directly affecting the physical and mental health of more and more people.

Professor Isabelle Giroux, who is a dietician and director of the School of Nutrition Sciences at the University of Ottawa, explains how innovations in food science are crucial in promoting health and well-being around the world and in responding to current issues. In her view, the expertise of dieticians trained at the School will improve health care, most notably in terms of prevention, support and food literacy. “The School is paving the way to a future in which everyone can eat healthy,” she said.
