Webinar: Healthy Beverages in Recreation Settings

Hosted by: Nutrition Resource Centre

While recreation settings serve as community hubs that promote active living, Canadian research has verified that the majority of beverages served in recreation settings are, ironically, high in calories and of low nutritional value. How can we address this contradiction? In particular, how we can limit access to sugar-sweetened beverages and promote water consumption as healthy beverage choices in our community's recreation settings?

The objectives of this webinar are to:

- Highlight the latest evidence on strategies to limit access to sugar-sweetened beverages in municipal recreation settings;
- Showcase stories and key lessons learned from municipalities who have made progress to limit sugar-sweetened beverages and promote water consumption in recreation settings; 
- Provide a toolbox of strategies, resources and tools to facilitate efforts to create healthy beverage environments in recreation settings across Ontario.
