New data on food skills are now available from the rapid response component of the Canadian Community Health Survey – Annual Component.

  Note to readers

The data were collected from all provinces in November and December 2012. Respondents were asked a number of questions related to how meals are prepared, such as children's participation, frequency of meals eaten at home and the types of ingredients used. The module also asked questions about grocery shopping. The addition of these questions to the Canadian Community Health Survey was sponsored by the Office of Nutrition Policy and Promotion, Health Canada.
