Food and Healthy Eating
Healthy eating is an important way to stay healthy and reduce your risk of chronic disease.1 Most Canadians do not eat enough vegetables and fruit.1 Many Canadians eat almost one-quarter of their energy from foods that fall outside the four food groups from Canada’s Food Guide.1 Your health is shaped by the places you live, work, learn and play. Being involved in your community and speaking out for healthy changes can make a difference in your health and the overall health of your community.
