Since it was first published in 1942, Canada’s food guide has evolved to reflect the latest science and contemporary health challenges. This should be no different for the next version of Eating Well With Canada’s Food Guide. In this webinar, you will learn about suggestions to improve the development process and recommendations in the food guide to promote healthy eating and help address the most pressing health challenge faced by Canadians today: preventing chronic disease and obesity. Evidence both from population dietary intakes and the food environment will be presented as practical examples, in line with Health Canada’s Healthy Eating Strategy.
This webinar is part of the Nutrition Resource Centre’s Eating for the 21st Century, a new webinar series about rethinking Canada’s dietary recommendations in light of current health, social, political and environmental challenges.
