Food & Healthy Eating

Healthy eating means enjoying a variety of foods from each of the four food groups most of the time, and listening to your body’s hunger and fullness cues. It’s important to remember that healthy eating is the overall pattern of the foods you eat over time and that all foods can fit!

Eating well in addition to other healthy lifestyle behaviours such as being active, tobacco-free, limiting alcohol use and being sun safe, will help you to feel your best and may prevent chronic diseases.

Did you know that your health is not only shaped by your lifestyle? It is also shaped by the places you live, work, learn and play. Our work focuses on ensuring the environment we live in allows you to make the healthy choice the easy choice.
