  • Why are food groups important?
    The Canada's food guide's food groups and portions are developed in order to assure individuals that they are consuming the nutrients that they require to keep their body functioning at optimal efficiency. Foods that belong to each of the four groups ( Vegetables and fruits, Milk and alternatives, Meat and alternatives, Cereal and grains) provide the body with essential nutrients in varying amounts. Following the food guide's recommendations will avoid deficiencies, keep you satisfied and maximize your energy metabolism.
