A few weeks ago I was invited to be on a webchat chatting Nutrition 101 on www.fRed.ca, a website for Ontario Liberals. I had a ton of fun frantically typing answers to questions about Naturopathic Medicine, nutrition, cooking healthy for families, and snack ideas from engaging Ontarians.
Tonight the fRed website hosted the Premier and I popped on afterwards to see what kind of questions he was answering. My eyes were immediately drawn to the word 'kale'.
He was asked about the agri business. He's a snip of the chat:
Larry: Agriculture. Can it be the main economic driver of the future?
Hi Larry, it can certainly be a powerful driver. Consumer demand for healthy, local foods is skyrocketing. We can't even begin to meet local demand for organic foods, for example.
The agri-food business is one of the top 5 in Ontario. We will always need to eat and there are great opportunities in satisfying our growing desire for healthier and more varied foods.
Terri has me eating weird stuff like kale. And I have a feeling more and more families are trying to eat healthier.
Way to go Premier! Everyone should be adding dark green leafies into their diet. Great source of calcium and magnesium.
