Welcome to the Nutrition Discovery Labs


The Nutrition Discovery Labs (ND Labs) at Ryerson University is home to a robust body of research focused on the physiological and environmental factors that contribute to appetite and energy imbalances with the goal of providing a foundation for advice on diet composition, physical activity, and environment in preventing and managing overeating in children. The ND Labs aims to provide evidence-based dietary, exercise and environment strategies that can fill an important gap that parents, school administrators, and policy makers can use to ensure children grow up happy and avoid a lifetime of poorer health.
