Food and  Healthy Eating


Eating healthy is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your family!

When you eat well, you feel better and you have more energy. You also lower your risk of developing health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer. Eating healthy is important to do every day for people of all ages where we live, play or work.

For more information on the main principles for healthy eating check Canada’s Food Guide.
