Additional Information:

  • Harvey’s launched four items that meet the Health Check criteria on November 19, 2012.
  • Health Check nutrient criteria were developed by the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s registered dietitians based on recommendations in Canada’s Food Guide.
  • The nutrient criteria are constantly evolving based on the best available evidence.
  • Health Check is the only health promotion program in the country that works with food companies and restaurants by challenging them to meet stronger nutrient criteria and offer healthier choices.
  • Healthy eating is a priority of the Heart and Stroke Foundation and Health Check is one part of the Foundation’s healthy eating strategy.
