Overview of Canadians' Eating Habits, no. 2 - ARCHIVED

Articles and reports: 82-620-M2006002


This report presents the results of the 2004 Canadian Community Health Survey on nutrition. It takes a comprehensive look at what Canadians are eating: how many calories they consume; whether they get an adequate number of servings of vegetables and fruit, milk products, meat and alternative and grain products, as recommended in Canada's Food Guide to Healthy Eating for People Four Years Old and Over; and what percentage of their diet consists of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. The report also compares CCHS nutrition data with the conclusions of the 1970-1972 Nutrition Canada Survey. In addition, it examines regional and economic differences in consumption patterns.
