What to Eat? Dietary Advice Meets Public Policy with Marion Nestle
November 7, 2019 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Eat more superfoods, probiotics, fermented foods, omega 3’s; eat less meat, more vegetables and eat locally grown. Are these dictates important to your health and wellness?
“What to Eat: Dietary Advice Meets Food Politics” is the topic of a free public program to be presented by nutrition expert, educator and award-winning author Marion Nestle on Thursday, Nov. 7 at 6 pm at John F. Kennedy Theatre, 1770 East West Road, University of Hawaii at Manoa.
Lauded as a public health hero and among the “most important foodies of our time,” Nestle will discuss the decisions we have to make among confusing food choices despite a worldwide consensus about the basic principles of healthy diets. This presentation describes these principles, examines why they are so difficult to follow and situates the unique food system of Hawaii within the greater context of global recommendations for diets that promote human health and the environment.
The program is being sponsored by the Hawaii Culinary Education Foundation with support from the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR), University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa and the University of Hawaiʻi – West Oʻahu Sustainable Community Food Systems Program (SCFS).
