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.

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.
