Canada's New Food Guide is here!
This morning, Federal Minister of Health, Ginette Petitpas Taylor, along with Dietitians of Canada, were on hand for the launch of the new Canada’s Food Guide by Health Canada.
The new food guide focuses not only on "what" Canadians should eat, but "how" they should eat.
Some changes to highlight include:
The former "Meat and Alternatives" and "Milk and Alternatives" food groups have been combined to form the "Protein Foods" group.
Instead of focusing on a specific number of servings and portion sizes, the emphasis is on eating a variety of foods from a well-balanced plate.
There is a recommendation to consume plant-based foods more often.
People are encouraged to prepare more meals at home and eat less processed foods containing sugar, salt and saturated fat.
Healthy beverages are recommended, with water being the number one choice.
The key healthy eating recommendations are as follows:
