Funding received from the Gouvernement du Québec

In March 2018, the NutriQuébec project received funding as part of the implementation of the Plan d'action interministériel 2017-2021 of the Politique gouvernementale de prévention en santé. 

The aim of the Politique gouvernementale de prévention en santé is to act on a combination of factors to improve the health status and quality of life of the population, and to reduce social inequalities in health. One of the targets is for half of the population to reach a minimal intake of 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day by 2025.

By following the dietary habits of the population through time, the NutriQuébec project will allow to measure the achievement of this target, among other targets.
