Miranda Malisani talks about food guide changes since 1942
We talk about today's food and nutrition guide and have tips for eating local foods.
Here are 4 tips to make eating local easy and fun!
- Read labels in the grocery store: compare products and always try to purchase produce that are grown in your local area or province.
- Visit a farmers market: Not only is an adventure for your senses - with all of the colors and smells of fresh ripe produce, but it's a great way to interact with the farmers who have put in their passion into growing the food that will be on your table.
- Pick your own: it's a great family outing and way to teach children where food is grown.
- Look for restaurants that use local food: There are some amazing Canadian Chefs that are focusing on creating dishes using only seasonal and local ingredients.
