Making healthy choices in the grocery store can be overwhelming. This is not surprising given all there is to choose from and this can make it difficult to choose wisely. Health Check provides education and guidance to help Canadians make healthy choices, and identifies healthy choices in grocery stores and restaurants with the Health Check logo.

To earn the Health Check logo, each participating food or restaurant menu item must meet nutrient criteria developed by the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s registered dietitians and nutrition experts. Once a product has been successfully evaluated, companies pay a modest annual license fee to help cover program costs and to develop tools to educate consumers on healthy eating.

Health Check is the only non-profit, independent, and neutral food information program in the country – the food industry has no involvement in setting the nutrient criteria. The program is based on guidelines and nutrition recommendations for overall health, and is not a therapeutic diet. Health Check also encourages consumers to read the Nutrition Facts table to compare products and make a healthy choice.
