Healthy Eating

Healthy eating is about enjoyment and is one of life's greatest pleasures. No matter who you are or how old you are, now is the most important time to eat healthy.

Everyone knows that healthy food is the cornerstone for good health. Canada's Food Guide Opens in new window provides the information you need to help you and your family understand how to make healthy choices. Healthy eating also helps prevent chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and certain types of cancer.

You deserve the best possible advice on healthy eating. If you're looking for reliable nutrition information contact a registered dietitian. Dietitians are health professionals and experts in the field of food and nutrition and are guided by a code of ethics which ensure consumers will receive safe and reliable information. In Newfoundland and Labrador, look for the professional designation R.D. after their name.

The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador recognizes that well nourished individuals, of all ages, are better able to actively participate in the life of their community. Eating Healthier in Newfoundland and Labrador, a provincial framework and action plan, serves as a guide to support individuals, community organizations, industry and government in achieving nutritional well being.
