To all Family Studies and Home Economics Educators,
The Government of Canada recently unveiled some of the changes to nutrition facts tables and ingredient lists on food labels in Canada. Their new website summarizes these changes very succinctly.
To visit their website, go to: http://www.healthycanadians.gc.ca/eating-nutrition/label-etiquetage/changes-modifications-eng.php
This week’s members-only resource is a fill-in-the-blank worksheet that can be used in any foods course taught in the Family Studies curriculum to cover the new and improved changes. It is meant to be used in partnership with the information presented on the website.
Being able to log in does not mean your membership is up-to-date. The membership year runs from September 1 - August 31. To access members only resources, a current membership is required. Current members have had to renew their membership on or after September 1, 2016.
