Healthy Eating

Healthy eating is one of the most important things you can do for your health. The goal is to achieve overall health and vitality and at the same time enjoy and celebrate food. 

Canada’s Food Guide provides guidance for a healthy diet. Choose a variety of foods from the Four Food Groups each day.
Not all nutrients are created equal. Some nutrients, such as fibre, we need to get more of in our diets, while others such as sugar and sodium we need to consume less of.
Planning is the first step to healthy eating.  Thinking ahead will help you create a week of healthy and delicious meals and snacks.
Life is busy and we are not always home to prepare meals and snacks. Making healthy choices  when eating out can be tricky, but by reviewing the nutrient information if it is available , it can be done.
Good nutrition is important at every stage of our lives. A lifetime of healthy eating is a long-term strategy that will pay off in many ways.
Holidays are meant to be celebrated, and food is often a big part of these occasions. There are lots of ways to enjoy yourself without overdoing it.
