Canada’s new Food Guide, released on January 22, is a modern approach to promoting healthy eating, making healthier eating choices easier for all Canadians. This new food guide focuses on what to eat and how to eat.
Canadians continue to need calcium and vitamin D for their bone health. Please refer to www.osteoporosis.ca for more information on calcium-rich foods. Osteoporosis Canada continues to encourage adults to take a daily supplement of vitamin D.
More information will be available later this year on suggested meal patterns. See Health Canada’s website for more food guide information.
