The Cost of Healthy Eating in Alberta

resource image

This series of reports presents an analysis of the cost and affordability of healthy eating in Alberta, as well as an overview of the causes, prevalence and impacts of household food insecurity. 

Target Audience

The target audience includes leaders, policy-makers, decision-makers, dietitians and other service providers who work in government, private, health and non-profit sectors. The reports are designed to assist these stakeholders in identifying social priorities and opportunities for action that may improve the livelihood of those households at higher risk for poor health outcomes.

The reports do not outline specific actions or nutrition guidance for the general public or for people who experience household food insecurity. Albertans can find resources that support healthy eating at healthyeatingstartshere.ca and MyHealth Alberta.
