Taking control of your nutritional health has never been easier. Today's technology gives us the access and ability to take control and manage our own nutritional health!

Health Canada is pleased to announce two new healthy eating tools for Canadians:

Eat Well Plate

The Eat Well Plate helps you follow Eating Well with Canada's Food Guide when planning and serving meals. The plate shows food group proportions and encourages you to make half your plate vegetables and fruit.

My Food Guide Mobile Application

The My Food Guide app allows Canadians to access healthy eating information anytime, anywhere for themselves and their family! It takes less than 5 minutes - simply select your age, sex and food preferences to get your own customized Food Guide.

The app can help you:

  • learn how many Food Guide servings you should eat from each of the four food groups;
  • choose your favourite types of foods from each food group;
  • see how much food is in one Food Guide serving; and
  • access other healthy eating tools and resources to help you eat well.

Below are a some other programs and resources that will help you manage your nutrition health.
