CPMA Expands Half Your Plate Nutrition Resources for Health Professionals
ONTARIO, CANADA - Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) is once again expanding its library of nutrition resources for health professionals. The newly-developed Half Your Plate resources are now available through the Half Your Plate Health Professionals network. Registered health professionals will have access to dozens of resources designed to educate clients and consumers on easy methods of increasing fruit and vegetable consumption.
“We are delighted to be sharing so many new resources with our growing Half Your Plate health professional community,” said Dietitian Jennifer Ong Tone. “These materials bolster our existing Half Your Plate toolkit and help address important disparities in consumer education.”
CPMA encourages all member companies working with dietitians or other health professionals to spread the Half Your Plate message, by encouraging those staff members to join the Half Your Plate health professionals network. Participants will receive a monthly e-newsletter that includes the latest news, events, and educational materials offered by Half Your Plate. Resources include the new “Top 10 Fruit and Veggie Myths Busted,” a ready-to-go presentation developed by dietitians for use in the community, according to a press release.
CPMA looks to continue progressing relationships with health professionals to broaden the reach of the Half Your Plate message. Member companies can also access these nutrition resources by becoming a Half Your Plate industry partner and signing CPMA’s memorandum of understanding. Registered dietitians, nutritionists, doctors, nurses, and other health professionals are encouraged to register as a health professional on HalfYourPlate.ca.
