Food for Health

September 19, 2015- January 3, 2016

Food is a topic of endless discussion. It's something we can't do without and it can also be a source of great enjoyment.

Is there anything as personal or as important as the foods we choose to eat each day? Our health depends to a large extent on what we eat.

The Food for Health exhibition and website from the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum takes a fresh look at the foods we eat and answers many of the questions Canadians have about their food choices, about food safety and about the role food plays in ensuring good health.


Are You What You Eat?

When you decide which foods to eat and how to prepare them, your choices do much more than please your taste buds - they also affect your health.

So how do you select from the incredible variety of foods available in Canada today?
