Public Health Nutrition...An Investment in the Future (1998)

Public health nutrition professionals are essential to health units, bringing appropriate skills, and a unique perspective. They are the only Registered Dietitians who have the mandate to serve the entire community. Public health nutrition professionals bring many strengths to health units. By using their skills, health units can better meet the requirements of provincially mandated programs, and maximize health outcomes in their communities.

Supersize Me: A Discussion Guide for Educators (1998) [

This discussion guide has been developed in response to educators requesting a tool to help with the use of the movie Super Size Me in the classroom. We are not encouraging the use of, or endorsing, this movie and we recommend that Super Size Me only be shown in classrooms with guided discussion around the sensitive and controversial subjects presented. Be aware of stereotypes and discriminatory attitudes presented, and be sure to address these in your classroom discussion. We do not feel Super Size Me is appropriate for students below the grade 6 level.

Call to Action on Food Security - Food Security Cover Sheet

Should we be content that some Ontarians are missing-out on a key opportunity for good health – food security? Does it cause you pause that annual Nutritious Food Basket surveys repeatedly show that many people with low-incomes – both from wages as well as from assistance -- can’t afford healthy eating after meeting other essentials such as housing? Are you comfortable that prosperity is being side-tracked and food bank use is substantially increasing?
To learn more about solutions you could promote, check-out the "Call to Action on Food Security” toolkit, which has been developed jointly by OPHA’s Food Security Workgroup and the Ontario Dietitians in Public Health. (June 2011)
