Canada’s food guide plate can help you make healthy food choices and support a healthy pattern of eating.

Keep these three easy steps in mind the next time you prepare a meal or a snack.

Step 1: Make half your plate vegetables and fruits. Vegetables and fruits should regularly make up the largest proportion of the foods you eat on any day.

Step 2: Choose whole grain foods. Whole grain foods are diverse, contain fibre and keep you feeling full longer.

Step 3: Include protein foods. Choose protein foods that come from plants more often. They are versatile and support disease reduction.
