Time to change your food eating habits after the federal government made changes to Canada's new 2019 Food Guide.
Health Minister Ginette Petitpas-Taylor unveiled the brand new guide at an event Tuesday in Montreal. Minister Petitpas-Taylor said that Canadian’s lives are busier than ever and food habits have been suffering because people often forced to choose quick food instead of the best food. Because of this, she says Canadians deserve a simple and helpful source of advice when it comes to picking good food.
That's where the new food guide comes in.
Here snapshot of the new food guide.
- Be mindful of your eating habits
- Cook more often
- Enjoy your food
- Eat meals with others
- Read food labels
- Beware of food marketing
- Limit highly-processed foods
- Choose protein foods that come from plants more often
A statement from the Community Food Centres Canada described this guidance as “a critical step forward is the inclusion of advice not only on what we eat but how we eat – cooking more at home, enjoying food, and eating with others – which, taken together, encourage a more communal and healthful approach to eating.”
