Canada's Food Guide (CFG) focuses on healthy eating in healthy environments for Canadians 2 years of age and older. Much of the messaging in the document aligns with the established CHEERS best practice recommendations. What does this mean for child care programs?
Health Canada has developed a number of resources to support Canadians to follow these recommendations and messages. They are useful for individuals and households to plan and prepare healthy meals, with easy access from tablets, smartphones, and computers. They are intended to be online, and printer-friendly. Print copies cannot be ordered at this time.
All information about the CFG is found on the Health Canada site at https://foodguide.canada.ca.
Please contact your local public health dietitian with your questions.
