New video series answers Health Check FAQs

Date: 07-03-2013

Canadians want to know more about us. The Health Check program, started in 1999, has grown significantly since its beginnings and continues to grow. Currently, the not-for-profit food information program is in both restaurants and grocery stores and is one way the Heart and Stroke Foundation helps Canadians eat well.

In order to address the most frequently asked questions about the program, Terry Dean, Director of Health Check, recently taped a series of videos.

“We want people to know that we are listening and are happy to answer any question about Health Check,” says Dean. “We’re very proud of the work we do and are really excited to be able to share these videos with Canadians in such an accessible way.”

In the first three videos, he answers the following questions:

  • Why do companies have to pay to be in the Health Check program?
  • Why is Health in quick service restaurants?
  • Why do sodium levels appear so high in some Health Check products?

The videos are available for viewing on Health Check’s official YouTube channel.

“My hope is that these videos provide clear and easy-to-digest answers to these questions,” Dean adds.

The series will continue to grow and provide more information about the program in the future.
