The question of what qualifies as “healthy” food is highly contested in healthcare and beyond. In June, we brought together the varying perspectives of dieticians and chefs for a rich discussion with Nourish innovators around how hospitals can lead the charge in expanding the definition of how food is produced, prepared and consumed for patient, population, and planetary health. We wanted to share the highlights below.
Do want to be part of this ongoing conversation around healthy food in health care? Nourish is hosting a public webinar on Aug 23, 2018 12:00 PM EST to explore broadening our understanding of healthy food in the health care setting in late August 2018. Please RSVP.
