January is often a time of year that we take a good look at the foods we are consuming but sometimes we need advice on healthy eating. For example, what is the make-up of a balanced diet and how can we do this on a budget?
One source is Canada’s Food Guide, dietary guidance that the Government of Canada is currently revising to meet our country’s diverse health and nutritional needs. This is a resource that the Calgary Food Bank uses to evaluate our Emergency Hamper content in conjunction with other experts and nutritionists. Knowing a new guide is in the works is great news for our assessment process and for improving our nutritional standards. A healthy approach to food fuels the body, the mind and the spirit; giving clients the strength to tackle their crisis and move forward to success.
