Food and environment messages for people of lower socio-economic status
At a recent meeting of community nutritionists, concerns were raised about the food messages for people on a limited budget and how they relate to the environment. Do we support home brands even though, in the long term they might lead to a reduction in competition and higher food prices? Do we suggest buying organic foods knowing that they cost more and are harder to access, especially if transport is an issue? What other strategies can we use to support both the environment and affordable eating? We came up with some suggestions. What can you add?
