NEW WEBSITE TO PROMOTE FOOD LITERACY is the new website launched by the FGC to improve food literacy among New Zealanders, prompting and supporting their health and wellbeing with evidence-based advice.
“We all know that food literacy is vital to enable consumers to choose, prepare and consume a healthy diet, but these days, given the many sources of different information available to use, information on healthy eating can be confusing and contradictory,” said Katherine Rich, chief executive, FGC.

As part of this commitment to tackling obesity, the FGC has confirmed its support of the New Zealand Government’s Childhood Obesity Plan through a series of initiatives, such as the rollout of the Health Star Rating scheme and the launch of health promotion videos.
