A webinar presented by the Sydney Group of the Nutrition Society of Australia together with the Charles Perkins Centre at the University of Sydney.
The development of the dietary guidelines usually begins with a review of the available evidence to answer specific questions designed to summarise the evidence underlying food, diet and health relationships. However, the focus of these reviews are very narrow and tend to address the relationship between single nutrients or food groups and health outcomes rather than issues around consumer behaviours and preferences or social determinants of eating.
With the imminent revision of the Australian Dietary Guidelines, this seminar will bring together a panel of food and nutrition experts from different disciplines to consider what issues should be included in the evidence review that will underlie this revision - to enable the development of guidelines that are appropriate in the current food environment but also address the drivers of food consumption in addition to the health implications of different diet components.
The panel consists of:
Sharon Friel Professor of Health Equity, Menzies Centre for Health Governance, ANU
Astrid Poelman Sensory and Consumer Science, CSIRO Agriculture and Food
David Raubenheimer Professor of Nutritional Ecology, Charles Perkins Centre
Margaret Allman-Farinelli Professor of Dietetics, SOLES, University of Sydney
Sinead Boylan Exec Director, Sydney Food and Nutrition Network, Charles Perkins Centre
The panel will be moderated by Professor Tim Gill from the Sydney Group of NSA and the Charles Perkins Centre.
