OSNPPH supports menu labelling and calls upon the provincial government to enact menu labelling legislation requiring the prominent display of calorie and sodium content of food items at the point of sale in restaurants in Ontario, as an important step toward creating healthy and supportive food environments for Ontarians.

The OSNPPH Workplace Nutrition Advisory Group calls on stakeholders including employers, food service operators, food distributors, union members, group benefits insurance companies and the provincial government to acknowledge that the current nutrition environment in Ontario workplaces is a significant public health issue that needs to be addressed and recognize that workplaces play a critical role in creating and maintaining a culture that encourages and models reasonable and healthy workplace practices.
The Call to Action offers a framework based on nine essential elements, which key stakeholders can use to create, implement and support a Healthy Workplace Nutrition Environment within their own jurisdiction using a comprehensive workplace health model.
