Royal Agricultural Winter Fair FREE Virtual Experience

“Can reducing food waste improve your dietary intake?”

In this live Guelph Family Health Study presentation, graduate student, Nicholas Carroll, will identify the key economic, environmental, and nutritional impacts of household food waste using results from a waste audit of families in Guelph. He will also explore how various aspects of food literacy may influence level of food waste and provide some helpful tools to help reduce household food waste. The session will end with an engaging food demonstration with postdoctoral fellow, Dr. Maude Perreault, who will show how you can make delicious dishes that will use up foods before they spoil.

The Nature of Things

“Kids vs. Screens”

Learn about the latest research to understand how screens affect children’s development, learning abilities and mental health in this documentary from The Nature of Things. We are excited that the Guelph Family Health Study will be highlighted, including an interview with a family participating in the study as well as with Study Co-Director, Dr. Jess Haines. See how we are working to help parents reduce screen time with their young children — and watch as our friend Henry tells the host his very best knock-knock joke!

Watch on CBC Television November 13th at 9pm or stream online on CBC Gem, available on your favourite devices.
