Healthy Food and Beverage Sales Webinar

Eating our way to good health –
supporting your community’s health through healthy food and beverage sales.

On March 5, 2012 the BCRPA hosted a Healthy Food and Beverage Sales (HFBS) webinar, examining what’s been done in BC to facilitate the adoption of healthy food and beverage options in recreation facilities.

Presenters included Dr. PJ Naylor, Associate Professor in the School of Exercise Science, Physical and Health Education (EPHE) within the Faculty of Education at the University of Victoria. Dr. Naylor, presented the evaluation she and the Social Research Demonstration Corporation implemented on all four phases of the BCRPA’s Stay Active Eat Healthy® - Healthy Food and Beverage Sales program.  Tom Bryce, Manager of Saanich Commonwealth Place (SCP) in Victoria, and Lisa Bealle, Recreation Programmer at the Harry Jerome Recreation Centre in North Vancouver, both provided first-hand accounts of their experience implementing health food and beverage options into their facilities and shared best practices and important lessons learned.
