4 Things to Know about Food is Medicine

FoodMinds attended the Food as Medicine Summit (May 10-11, 2023) which provided a platform for leaders driving innovation across healthcare and the food industry to share their insights and experiences. It was a stimulating event, full of enlightening discussions around the intersection of the medical system, technology, food sector and nutrition. While the summit was packed with valuable insights, here are four key takeaways that food and beverage stakeholders should know about Food as Medicine.

1. Food is much more than just medicine.

2. Embracing cultural relevance is critical in Food is Medicine initiatives.

3. Healthy eating is nuanced and multifaceted and cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach.

4. Globally, few linkages exist between health insurance payers and the broader food system.
