Might there be new food labels regulations coming out of Canada? The Toronto Star thinks so:
Canadians have little in common with the Olympic athletes competing in our name, says Mary Bush, director of the office of nutrition policy and promotion at Health Canada, and a mover in the new food labelling regulations. “The average Canadian is not a well-oiled machine.”
Bush was one of 46 speakers last week at a Montreal conference trying to untangle the mess and find solutions. Some 280 experts from all levels of the food chain, from field to fork, attended. Run by the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada, the conference was called What Are We Eating? Towards a Canadian Food Policy. It left us with a lot to think about.
