Did you know Health Canada is revising Canada’s Food Guide? From October 24th-December 8th the public is asked to participate in their Phase 1: Public Consultation Workbook. You can to go http://www.foodguideconsultation.ca and fill out a short survey. Why not incorporate it into your foods classes and have students input their own ideas? Health Canada will use the public’s input to:
• identify ways to effectively communicate nutrition information to Canadians
• develop healthy eating recommendations and policies
• better understand different audiences’ use of healthy eating recommendations.
