Canadians get food from lots of different
places: grocery stores, restaurants, cafeterias, fast food counters, and many others. 60% of the food we buy is processed and packaged. Many of these are high in sugars, sodium and saturated fat. Canadians need better quality foods
and easy-to-understand nutrition information. That’s why we’re working to improve food labels so that they are easier to understand, and to put a new nutrition symbol on the front of packages, to ban industrially produced trans fat, to reduce sodium in foods, to update Canada’s Food Guide, to restrict marketing to kids, and to support access to better food everywhere in Canada. These changes will help make the healthier
choice the easier choice. Find out more at Canada.ca/healthy-eating-strategy A message from Health Canada and the Government Canada.
