[Media release] Canada's New Food Guide is a Big Step in the Right Direction

MONTREAL - January 22, 2019 - Food Secure Canada applauds today’s release of the new Canada’s Food Guide, going beyond simply what to eat and getting to how we eat: encouraging more plant-based foods and less highly processed foods, and eating more mindfully and together. The new dietary guidelines open the door to important next steps, addressing how poverty and food insecurity influence diet and health, and beginning to consider cultural dimensions and the environmental impact of our food choices.
