By now you have probably heard all about how food prices have gone up and are expected to continue to go up even more in the future. With COVID and supply chain issues, we have seen it all in the last 2 years! So, how can you still eat healthy, sustainable, and delicious foods without breaking the bank?
Two words: Canadian Foods!
That’s right, Canadian food is world-class, healthy, sustainable, and delicious. Many people have a misconception that eating local or Canadian food is much more expensive in comparison to buying packaged foods or food from other parts of the world. Canadian families deserve to know the facts about the food they eat – and the fact is: Canadian food is healthy, nutritious, and affordable.

Canadian Food Facts – Did you know?
Some fun Canadian Food Facts I want to share, let me know if you knew about these in the comments below:
- All Cdn milk is rigorously tested to ensure that it is safe and high-quality for you and your family.
- Pulses like peas, lentils, and beans don’t require nitrogen fertilizers to grow. They convert nitrogen from the air into usable forms. So, they have a naturally lower carbon footprint than most foods.
- The Canadian Cancer Society, Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada and Canada’s Food Guide recommend filling half your plate with fruits and vegetables every day.
