Nutrition, Diet and Food Security

Food security can only be truly realized by addressing the challenges faced by First Nations people to achieve a nutritious diet that upholds Traditional Knowledge and utilizes food for mental, physical, social, and environmental health. Eating patterns arise from complex and holistic food acquisition and distribution systems that provide health benefits beyond nutrition.
