New Canada Food Guide Does Away With Serving Sizes, Food Groups
The 2019 guide is all about less meat, more water.
OTTAWA — Drink more water and eat more plants, Canada’s new food guide says, doing away with the traditional food groups and serving counts familiar to generations of students in health classes across the land.
The food-guide facelift unveiled Tuesday, the first in 12 years, reflects a new approach by Health Canada aimed at promoting healthier eating and lifestyle choices, rather than emphasizing serving sizes and specific foods.
“The guide continues to provide advice on what to eat, but now it also emphasizes that healthy eating is more than the food you eat,”
