In 2015, it was announced that the 2007 version of the Food Guide would undergo a revision process (evidence review and public consultation) as part of Canada’s Healthy Eating Strategy. On January 22nd, 2019 a new Canada’s Food Guide was unveiled. The new Guide moves away from a one-document approach, to a suite of online resources to support Canadians fit the guide to their everyday lives. Canadians can access information on healthy eating by visiting www.canada.ca/foodguide.
This presentation will go over the main changes to the guide, how these changes impact the school environment, and how educators can support the teachings of the guide in their school and classrooms.
