4 Benefits of Canada’s ‘My Food Guide’ App

If you’re ever in doubt about how much you can eat of your favourite foods, Canada has an app for that. My Food Guide is an interactive tool that takes Canada’s Food Guide and suggested food guidelines and customizes it based on your age, sex and food preferences.

Portion control

Ever wonder if you’re overserving yourself? With this app, you can learn how many servings you’ll need to eat from each of the suggested four food groups.
