2 out of the 3 pillars of Trudeau’s signature food policy initiatives are faltering
It’s been a tough few months for the Trudeau government’s signature healthy eating strategy — a series of legislative initiatives aimed at improving public health through better food choices.
Now another key part of the strategy appears headed for a cliff. Time is running out for proposed new rules that would require symbols on the front of food packages to alert consumers when a food product is high in salt, sugar or saturated fat.
“It’s a big concern for us that the two key pillars from the healthy eating strategy haven’t been completed,” said Manuel Arango, director of policy advocacy and engagement with Heart and Stroke.
