Nutrient Criteria

The Health Check nutrient criteria are developed by the Heart and Stroke Foundation' registered dietitians based on recommendations in Canada's Food Guide and are reviewed on a regular basis. The criteria are evidence-based. They are supported by research and are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Other factors that influence the criteria include

  • evolving scientific evidence
  • advice of volunteer experts on the Health Check Technical Advisory Committee
  • policy directions of the Foundation
  • purchasing patterns of Canadians
  • market realities.
