Sponsored Satellite Program: Affordable Nutrition: How Food Prices Impact Food Insecurity and Ways to Support Healthy Eating
Sponsored By: General Mills Bell Institute
This Sponsored Satellite Program was originally presented at NUTRITION 2023.
The amount of food a household can afford depends on its resources available, the constraints it faces, and prices. Understanding the impact of food prices on food security is especially important considering current inflationary pressures on vulnerable households.
During this session, we will begin with an overview of present knowledge on food prices, food insecurity, and how these intersect with the impact of assistance programs, which are often not adjusted for inflation in a timely manner. We will also hear from a large food retailer on present day challenges of raising food costs on shoppers and discuss the contribution of wellness programs and nutrition education services in food retail settings to support nutrient dense and affordable meal solutions. Lastly, using findings from the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and Canadian Community Health Survey – Nutrition (CCHS), we will evaluate the contribution of breakfast foods that are affordable and widely available to daily nutrient intakes.
This Sponsored Satellite Program includes the following presentations:
- Food Insecurity and Impacts of Inflation
- Affordable Nutrition: How Food Prices Impact Food Insecurity and How to Leverage Grocery Stores to Shop Healthy on a Budget
