Food and Nutrition

Eating is about more than food and can look different from person to person.

  • Choose foods for enjoyment, culture, preferences, traditions, budget, health, and celebrations;
  • Enjoy a variety of foods, including foods found in Canada’s Food Guide;
  • Include plant-based foods like beans, peas, pulses, vegetables, and fruits;
  • Pay attention to when you feel hungry and full; and
  • Cook and eat with others more often.

Canada’s Food Guide can help you:

  • Lower your risk of heart disease, diabetes, certain types of cancer, and osteoporosis;
  • Have a healthy pregnancy and baby;
  • Provide the nutrients your children need to grow and develop; and
  • Have more energy and feel good.
