Happy Pride from UCLA’s Kaly Steele

Canada’s Food Guide

Canada’s Food Guide was updated and released to the general public in January 2019.

Unlike previous food guides’ emphasis on food groups and recommended servings, the 2019 revision from Health Canada recommends eating “plenty of vegetables and fruits, whole grain foods and protein foods.

The U.S. version still includes a Dairy section.
